Inanimate objects don't have “comprable” value to humans B. The only thing that has uncomprable value is morality, but wait. Humans have uncomprable value, so what's the deal?! i. So since human's have the capacity to self-legislate, they have the ability to universalize a maxim (policy of action – if I have the end to eat lunch, then I'll go to the cafeteria on campus), therefore they have capacity to wish their will across universal maxims. a) If every human being observed this universal maxim, there wouldn't be any contradiction in the conception or willing of this maxim.

    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.
