  • Evaluation of Kant
    • Strenghts
      • People generally have the same ideas about morality so having an absolutist ethical theory would please most people.
      • Based on reason
      • Has a clear criteria for what is moral
      • Shows respect for human life
      • Distinguishes between what is best and inclination
    • Weaknesses
      • Putting duty above human emotion makes us cold and distant.
      • Duty alone is not a good enough motive
      • It's human nature to consider the consequences before acting
      • Duties may conflict
      • Not everyone is capable of being rational
      • Only works if everyone lives in the kingdom of ends
