Immanuel Kant and her Moral Philosophy

June 27, 2021 Off By Felso

Kant advocates the existence of a universal morality of duty. With this thought, Kant predicts that people obey the rules under all conditions. For example, in a place where there is a traffic police, the driver of the car stopping when the red light comes on should be able to stop at the red light, even in the middle of the night, when there is no one around, as a requirement of homework ethics.

According to Kant, the source of morality can never be experience. According to him, people have a will for goodness. And this will is the manifestation of behaviors without any interest. People gain this will not from experience, but from example.

Kant talks about social morality besides duty morality. One of the simplest examples of this is killing people during war. Killing people in a war environment is supported by a social moral understanding.
