Homework for 11/11

Here’s your homework for Tuesday, November 11:

  • Read the same passage in Kant that we focused on last time. Now that we’ve talked about how the arguments seem to work, you are in a better position to assess whether Kant’s arguments work.
  • Blog about the issue of rationality that arises time and time again in these passages. Here are some questions you might think about: What is the connection between rationality and self-interest or self-love? What kinds of assumptions does Kant make about the nature of rationality? How does Kant use the notion of rationality to demonstrate our duties? In what ways is categorical imperative dependent on rationality? Et cetera.
