Description
The central philosophical concept in the moral philosophyof Immanuel Kant is the categorical imperative. According to Kant, human beings occupy a special place in creation, and morality can be summed up in one ultimate commandment of reason, or imperative, from which all duties and obligations derive. He defined an imperative as any proposition that declares a certain action (or inaction) to be necessary. Duty is the necessity to act out of reverence for the moral law set by the categorical imperative. He divides duties into two subsets – perfect and imperfect duties. Imperfect duties are circumstantial, meaning simply that you could not reasonably exist in a constant state of performing that duty. Since these depend somewhat on the subjective preferences of humankind, this duty is not as strong as a perfect duty, but it is still morally binding.
