After reading the assigned passages from The Ethical Life, respond to the following prompts. To receive full credit, you must respond to all the prompts in a meaningful and appropriate manner. Why does Kant find lying to be such a problem? How can you stay true to Kant’s basic ideas but allow for lying in some circumstances, i.e you can stop one person from harming another by lying? NOTE: I am not asking for your opinion about lying in either question. I want you to try to figure out why lying is so wrong for Kant. Stick to his philosophy. Also, with the second question, I am not asking for how you justify lying, but rather how you might be able to justify lying using Kant’s own ideas. I hope that helps clarify the assignment. Let me know if you have any questions. Also, you are welcome to use outside resources to help answer the questions, but you must cite them. Your assignment will be check for plagiarism with SafeAssign. Any assignment deemed plagiarised will receive a zero. One final note, even if you cite your sources, but your answer is nothing but quotes, you will not receive full credit for the assignment. I am asking you to think about Kant’s philosophy and to answer the questions in your own words.
