Write My Essay On-Kant Theory.
Kant’s theory focuses on RESPECT FOR PERSONS. Explain how this respect works and why Kant thinks this is a central moral principle. How does AUTONOMY factor into Kant’s moral theory, and what role does it play in his ethical theory.
Kant’s CATEGORICAL IMPERATIVE. Explain what this means, in your own words, focusing on how this becomes a way of setting up MORAL LAWS for people to follow. Pick one and explain it, in your own words, and try to clarify how this objection works and what Kant might say in response.
Kant very famously said that you can NEVER lie. The Categorical Imperative forbids lying in ANY case or circumstance. Imagine a scenario: your neighbor, Lisa, rushes to your door, frantic. She says an axe murderer is looking for kill her. She asks you to hide her in your home, and you do. A few minutes later, a man with an axe knocks on your door and asks, calmly, “is Lisa here? I need to see her!” He has asked you a direct (Yes/No) question. You have to decide whether to lie or tell the truth. Kant seems to think you MUST tell the truth here. How do you reply? Why?
