Work not for a reward; but never cease to do thy work. The Bhagavad Gita2: Michel de Montaigne, Essays, "That our actions should be judged by our intentions," I: Cohen, Penguin, p. The State of Nature has a Law of Nature to govern it, which obliges every one: And Reason, which is that Law, teaches all Mankind, who will but consult it, that being all equal and independent, no one ought to harm another in his Life, Health, Liberty, or Possessions.
Hobbes characterizes his completely empirical way of thinking very remarkably by the fact that, in his book De Principiis Geometrarum, he denies the whole of really pure mathematics, and obstinately asserts that the point has extension and the line breadth.
Yet we cannot show him a point without extension or a line without breadth; hence we can just as little explain to him the a priori nature of mathematics as the a priori nature of right, because he pays no heed to any knowledge that is not empirical.
But as soon as one wants to extend this principle, to make it the basic principle of society [Grundprincip der Gesellschaft], it shows itself for what it is: He grokked that this was one of the critical cusps in the growth of a being wherein contemplation must bring forth right action in order to permit further growth.
You see everything in black and white! Jack Ryan [Harrison Ford]: Not black and white Ritter, right and wrong! Clear and Present Danger [Paramount Pictures, ] Ethical goods are goods in relation to persons -- goods for persons. There are multiple persons, and these are divided generally into self and others.
Ethical goods thus fall into two categories: All ethical goods are autonomously defined by selves i. Thomas Jefferson, in a letter fromexpresses this nicely: But I consider our relations with others as constituting the boundaries of morality To ourselves, in strict language, we can owe no duties, obligation requiring also two parties.
Self-love, therefore, is no part of morality. Indeed it is exactly its counterpart. It is the sole antagonist of virtue, leading us constantly by our propensities to self-gratification in violation of our moral duties to others. By contrast, we find Immanuel Kant saying, " It is a good, but a non-moral good.
Non-moral goods are matters of ethical hortatives rather than imperatives, as explained in relation to the polynomic theory of value. Kant is probably under the impression that self-preservation is a duty, and so suicide a sin, because of Christian ethics, not because of the eternal forms of reason to which he appeals.
Greek and Roman moralists rather admired certain kinds of suicide. But they were pagans.
Even Dante excuses the suicide of virtuous pagans, such as Cato the Younger. If suicide were morally wrongful, the only effective sanction against it would be of the sort threatened by Christianity: Punishment, however, only provides a prudential, not a moral, motive for goodness, as Kant well understood himself.
The character of the action itself must be wrongful and the moral duty unconditioned. Yet is Kant himself going to require the hero to preserve his own life when its sacrifice might save his honor, his fellows, or his Nation?
Did Jesus have a duty to preserve his life when its Sacrifice would Save mankind? Even if Kant did not believe in Christian Redemption, it is hard to imagine him being able to sustain an argument that self-preservation is required in all circumstances.The Fallacies of Egoism and Altruism, and the Fundamental Principle of Morality (after Kant and Nelson) I have not done wrong.
