Another section covers issues of a metaphysics of morals. The philosopher chastises the idea of beginning moral judgment with empirical scrutiny. The last part is intended to explain that people have a free will, hence they are able to establish their moral compass and consider an acceptable form of
Discuss the role of reason according to Kant. Show how reason is tied to autonomy and to Kant requirement that we respect others. Consider any weaknesses in Kant 's emphasis on reason in his moral theory. Immanuel Kant was a German philosopher who was widely considered to be a central figure of modern philosophy. He argued that fundamental concepts structure human experience, and that reason is the source of morality.
He handled many issues in the area of philosophy, and he came into prominence with his analysis, criticizes and revealing the new terms. One of the term that he analyzed is epistomology, and in Kant 's epistomology we can not know the main meaning of the thing in real; he values the human mind above everything,and he says rationality works same for everyone. With this association mathematic exists,and with it 's effect we can comunicate with eachother. However,we can only reach limited information about reality, because we can only receive the knowledge which passes through out filters of mind. In the same way in moral philosophy, because of that every humanbeing has the same structure of mind,we can reach the common truths with using our mind,and these truths are only associate with our minds.
This criticism has as its main target Korsgaard's argument for humanity. Just like the criticims of Korsgaard's constructivism, Tenenbaum and FitzPatrick believe that morality in Korsgaard's theory is based upon something that the individual agent does. The difference is that they argue that even if the individual agent chooses to reason in the way that Korsgaard wants him to reason, this way of reasoning is flawed. Here I will shortly discuss their argument to show that it is based upon the interpretation of the self as the source of normativity that I am

by the limit of Mill’s Utilitarianism. I would only focus on Mill’s charge of Kant’s moral law. Because it might be superfluous for my purpose to discuss Mill’s utilitarianism on its own accord, much like discussing Hegel’s own philosophy in the earlier section. 2.2.1 Mill’s Utilitarianism Mill 's critique of Kant derives from the philosophical perspective of Utilitarianism. In the Introduction of his book, Utilitarianism, Mill remarks that it is rare that moral thinkers do not provide a list of a priori principles or offer a guiding first principle or an area of common ground.
In my rhetorical analysis of Immanuel Kant’s “What Is Enlightenment” I hoped to solve some of my own questions that I have concerning this consequential essay. Kant is a cornerstone of philosophy, and while this piece does not relate to one specific philosophic discourse, it is uncontrovertibly written in a philosophic manner. Yet within Kant work, he veers dangerously close to making what seem to be appeals to a to authority. I would like to think that Kant is not making this appeal in order to justify his own argument. In order to solve this problem I divided the two.
Several of Hegel’s arguments against the formalism identified in Kant’s moral philosophy are still widely accepted. For further details, please review the prior discussion of Hegel’s criticisms of Kant in section 1.1.1 of this paper. Silber notes that Hegel’s criticisms of C1 are based on the principle of consistency or more specifically the inconsistencies in Kant’s thought, which hold only limited applicability for deriving logical maxim mistakes, i.e. ‘I want to stay dry by walking naked in the rain.’ CI is thus charged with emptiness that lacks meaning. Therefore, Silber seeks to demonstrate that C1 represents not mere logical consistency, but most importantly, volitional consistency, which conforms to practical reason, not necessarily logical
Natural law theory states that people should focus on the good and avoid any evil. The last theory is Aristotle’s virtue ethics which states that we should move from the concern towards good action and to focus on the concern with good character. This paper argues that Aristotle’s virtue ethics is better than the other ethical theories. The divine command theory says that what is morally right and what is morally wrong is determined by God and God alone. People who follow the divine command theory believe that God is the creator of all things, therefore, he must also be the creator of morally right and wrong acts.
