Battle for Elephant 5 crime is also concern about the Kantian ethics. In Kant’ Maxim, every action has a maxim & the rightness of an action depends on its maxim.

    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.
