  • Midterm Paper

     

     

    Write an 8-10 page paper on one of the following topics.

     

     

    1- Explain what the categorical imperative is. What does it demand from us as moral beings? Why is it different from a hypothetical imperative? Show how the imperative would shape our response to an example you find in the Ferrell text. Finally, explain how a categorical imperative impacts one’s understanding of public corruption schemes, such as bribery.

     

    2- Explain the place of reason in Kant’s philosophy. How can reason ground moral philosophy? What is the relationship between reason and experience? Show how rational moral laws take precedence over superficial experiential circumstances or selfish inclinations by analyzing an example in the Ferrell text. Finally, show how rational moral laws help us to critique race and gender discrimination.

     

    3- Explain the nature of synthetic a priori statements. Why must the categorical imperative be a proposition of this type? Does this introduce an added amount of certainty to moral philosophy? Can we better understand the place of dignity in Kantian ethics through this idea? Show how moral goodness as dignity can help to prevent some of the problems described in the Ferrell textbook, such as discrimination.

     

    4- Describe Kant’s five formulations of the imperative. Apply the formulations to examples from the Ferrell text. Show why these formulations are in accord with producing a good will. Do you agree with Kant that a good will is perfectly good? Explain what is morally wrong with sexual harassment under these formulations, making use of the Ferrell text in your discussion.

     

     

    The assignment is due as a hard copy in class on Wednesday, March 18. Also submit a copy by email to  You must include at least two outside references in a bibliography or works cited page. The references must be knowledgeably discussed and incorporated into your paper, and you must also discuss the cultural contexts of the topics you discuss in your paper.
