    I consider to be the strongest argument against Gensler’s theory, David Hume’s argument of how Moral Motivation Undermines Moral Objectivity. I will then attempt to show how the argument does not show that GR Intuitionism is false with the aid of Immanuel Kant’s view on reasoning in morality. By showing how the GR Intuitionism is sound, and refuting Hume’s argument, I will argue that ethical objectivism is true. Ethical objectivism is the meta-ethical view that there is at least one objective…

    Immanuel Kant originally coined Kantian deontology. Kantian deontology looks more at the duties you owe to people rather than rules like other deontological theories ‘Another way to show that Kantian duties are different from rules is to point out that many Kantian duties are positive and guiding, not restrictive and constraining’ (White 2009). Kant also goes on to express that we should ‘act in such a way that you treat humanity…

While Catholics believe that the only way to overcome sin is through God, Marxism states that natural constraints are overcome by…

In addition, O’Connor and plaintiffs contended that drivers did not receive any proceeds from gratuity such as tips. Ultimately, both of these claims violate California Labor Codes and California’s Unfair Competition Law. On the other hand, Uber has argued that their drivers set their own work schedule and…

    Immanuel Kant, German philosopher and central figure of modern philosophy, once said, “Immaturity is the incapacity to use one's intelligence without the guidance of another.” Immaturity is driven by ignorance and can lead to action without analysis of consequences. Immaturity consumes thoughts and actions and leads to a distorted perception of right from wrong and societal expectation. Although the boys’ survival instincts are put on trial in the novel “Lord of the Flies”, the primary…

    Utilitarian John Mill Stuart applied a scientific model to morality with the goal of creating the maximum amount of goodness called the Greatest Happiness Principle. The Great Happiness Principle is the morally right action that causes the greatest overall amount of pleasure, happiness, or the least amount of suffering. This can be applied in general by using the Happiness Calculus. The Happiness Calculus measures how much pleasure and pain will be brought out of a given situation. An example…
