Human agents have a dignity that goes beyond any temporary worth, including their worth to a self-interested agent who wants to use them to achieve some temporary ends. No one would be the law-giver over others in such a situation, yet each would give a law consistent with the autonomy of others. This kingdom of ends is an ideal for Kant; it indicates what we should dream of should every agent act and will from regard for duty. Of course, not everyone will do this; should everyone be nice to others, we may still wonder if they are doing from the motive of FHE, say, or from some crass motive of self-interest.

All of this is beside the point, however. FKE merely allows us to picture this state of affairs that is so hard to detect in an attempt to allow it to motivate us further.

Communication Ethics Implications Simply put, Kant provides theorists with the strongest example of a duty- based or deontological system of ethics.

One answer could be their ability to be done by many others, and not simply be motivated by a self-serving need of that agent that excludes others. Does that action preserve and promote the rational agency of others—their ability to freely select ends and the means to reach those ends—or does it distort or destroy it?

Thus in cases of communication practices and technologies, the question can be: For Kant, such paternalism focuses on the wrong aspect for moral analysis: Thus, FHE represents one of the strongest guides for the ethics of communication: Not upholding one or both of these standards means that our communicative actions have used others as mere means, and thereby not given them the respect we would expect ourselves to be given if the situation was reversed.

In his analysis of this case using FUL, Kant emphasizes that promising would not occur without the assumed trust in promising by both parties; the maxim involved in the lying promise would destroy the possibility of promising per se, thus rendering it not morally worthy. In his FHE analysis, Kant is more straightforward: What renders this a morally-objectionable mere means?

It seems that the used agent in the example lacks two qualities: Human agents have a dignity that goes beyond any temporary worth, including their worth to a self-interested agent who wants to use them to achieve some temporary ends. No one would be the law-giver over others in such a situation, yet each would give a law consistent with the autonomy of others.

Mary J. Gregor New York: Morality as Universal Law1 Scott R. Stroud Immanuel Kant — was one of the most important modern philosophers. The importance of the human mind, especially its power of reason, was also central in his moral philosophy. Kant is one of the few thinkers to detach the value of rational agents from states of pleasure or happiness; instead, his ethical system focused on our worthiness to be happy through showing the right sort of respect for rational agency, not on the attainment of happiness.

His inquiry centers on a few central questions.

What is morally good in this world? Is there a notion of moral goodness that transcends limiting conditions? How does moral goodness relate to freedom? Kant is enamored by the Newtonian sense of law—meaning it is something universal and necessary—that he will accept as a starting point only that which is unconditionally good or morally worthy.

Anything less would be conditional and contingent, good for a certain purpose but not others. Arnett, Annette M.

The first of these themes concerns the principled, law-like regularity involved in moral activity. For Kant, rational agents with freedom have a choice in what kind of principle or maxim they use to guide any specific action.

When I am nice to my friend Fred, what do I analyze to see if this behavior is moral worthy? For Kant, it is not the consequences, since these can change with the uncertain world, or they can be unclear I could help Fred, but find out later that he was a serial killer. Self-focused or abusive maxims will fail this test, it is asserted by Kant, although this is always a source of contention in Kant scholarship.

Animals lack this ability, Kant would assert, but humans and other rational beings perhaps on other planets in the universe meet this standard and thus deserve the highest level of dignity.
