II.Select only one question, A or B, below and write a concise essay addressing all of the points raised therein.  Read both questions first before you make your choice. Choose the question that you think you can best answer. 

 

A.  The Categorical Imperative (CI) is the one and only regulative Law that Kant gives us as the condition for testing whether or not an action, decision or policy is morally justified.  First of all, what does Kant mean by describing this law as categorical, and what is a CI as opposed to a hypothetical imperative?  How does the CI guide us in determining the moral course of action? Now give the three formulations of the CI.  Briefly analyze each to show what each emphasizes and how they are logically interrelated.  Give an illustration showing how one might apply the CI in resolving a moral issue in business.

 

 

B. Utilitarianism:  State what the Principle of Utility (PU) requires us to promote & give the series of several steps used to define “utility.” What basic problematic assumption was the purely quantitative approach to Utilitarianism based upon?  Why is that assumption problematic?  By what distinction did J. S. Mill attempt to salvage the theory?   How did J. S. Mill’s modifications avoid the problems of the quantitative theory?   What new problems did J.S. Mill’s modifications create and what do these problems show about the PU?  Is the principle still useful, why or why not? Illustrate your answer with your own example drawn from business.
