Adultery / A Kantian Perspective
[ send me this paper ]
A 7 page paper positing that desire is a mental construct, that curtailing desire is natural to human nature and is formulated by reasoning, that reasoning leads to both individual and community ethics based on moral principles established for the good of the community, and that obligation and duty of individuals within the community establish an ethical foundation for living within the community, therefore we can assume that Kant would support the theory that adultery is disallowed, and therefore unethical.

Air Traffic Controllers Dismissal And Its Relation The Works Of Kant
[ send me this paper ]
A 6 page paper discussing Kant's imperatives to government and the governed people as they relate to the firing of the Air Traffic Controllers by Ronald Reagan. The paper postulates that Reagan's decision was short-sighted, because his actions have potentially lead to that which he sought to prevent--a socialistic public labor pool. The paper discusses the affects of his decision in relationship to both the public and private sector, and how it may have resulted in the quiet revolution affecting the private sector. Although Kant specifies that altruistic citizens subject themselves to their sovereign, they must also police their sovereign, and therefore, the long-term results of Reagan's decision are in the hands of the people. Bibliography lists 6 sources.

Kant and Autonomy
[ send me this paper ]
It is difficult to address any study of ethical behavior without addressing the work of Immanuel Kant. He addresses morality through the interpretation of autonomy. In The Grounding for the Metaphysics of Morals, Kant defines the concept he calls 'categorical imperative'. He sets his thoughts within the parameters of the rights and duties inherent in the autonomy of man. This 8 page paper argues that autonomy is the utilization of the will inherent in the nature of the animal while free choice is the utilization of the a priori 'soul' that the religionists would say governs the higher thoughts of man in his relation to God. In this manner, Kant is in agreement with Stanley Jaki's representation of scientific history and philosophical rationality in the book, Angels, Apes, and Men. Bibliography lists 5 sources.

The Case of Stella Liebeck and Tort Reform as Supported by the Works of Kant
[ send me this paper ]
A 5 page paper that seeks to prove that Immanuel Kant would support both Stella Liebeck's case and Congress' subsequent tort reform laws, simply because they meet his altruism ideals for citizens and government under his laws of citizen duty to act under the laws and slow government reform. This paper claims that Kant would not support McDonald's egoism in retaining their hot coffee policy because of the number of complaints received prior to Liebeck's case--and also his 'mine and thine' policy on dual responsibility. Kant was a supporter of free-will as long as the individual agreed to avoid chaos by lending itself to government's laws, and a supporter of government as long as it made slow reforms that did not incite revolutionaries. Bibliography includes 6 sources .

Utilitarianism
[ send me this paper ]
A 5 page paper discussing the relationship between utilitarianism and a specific quote from 'Warren Massacre' by Nagel. The line is examined, in detail, and is found to have many qualities that address the issue of utilitarianism.

It is very much a line which is clearly open to interpretation and opinion. No additional sources cited.

The Practical Application of the Theories of Kant and Mill
[ send me this paper ]
Immanuel Kant and John Stuart Mill are philosophers who addressed the issues of morality in terms of how moral traditions are formed. Kant's theory of categorical imperative states that humanity is of ultimate value and should be regarded as an end in itself. Mill's 'principle of utility' or 'the greatest happiness principle' sought for the systematic coherency of ethical philosophy through the consequences of actions as the consideration determining their morality, presupposed by the acquisition of happiness as opposed to the avoidance of pain. This 6 page paper examines the practical application of the two theories. Bibliography lists 2 sources.
