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

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
