03:20 Deriving duties from the categorical imperative . Kant claims that all duties can be derived from the categorical imperative (421). This topic investigates how exactly– and indeed whether–this can be done. a) Illustrate in depth and in careful detail, using both the formula of universal law and the formula of humanity, how some more specific duties can be derived from the categorical imperative. (It is good to include some examples other than Kant’s.) Be sure to explain the principal concepts in each formula when presenting these two versions of the categorical imperative. Talk about what Kant defines as a duty (ak425)  Illustrate the formula for universal law (421) and formula for humanity (ak429) o Principal concepts o act in a way that you can will your motive of action to be the motive of  action of every rational being in the same situation o never treat people as merely a means because nobody sees themselves
