Morals Section 2
Reminder this is a reading quiz. As usual, isolate the quotes from the text FIRST and then give your exegesis of the quotes in an interpretive paragraph to follow.
Explain Kant’s tirade against making happiness or the good life the basis for ethics, explain carefully his arguments on pp. 27-28 and their relation to the Monkey’s Paw and Pickle stories (to discuss in class).
Distinguish the self-contradiction test from the moral worth test. Can you pass the first without passing the second?
Explain all four examples of the categorical imperative test, (pp. 30-32) with the following in mind. Distinguish Kant’s self-contradiction test from Grandma’s Theory of “what if everybody did that”? Explain the difference between the perfect duties of examples 1 and 2, and the imperfect duties of 3 and 4 and show that both compel assent from a perfectly rational and free will.
What is the real pay off of the self-contradiction test? What does it reveal in us that opens up the secret of the ethical universe according to Kant?

please see the previous paper and write a new one.
You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.
Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.
Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor.
The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument.
the paper needs to be perfect because this is my last chance. try to be more clear and explain more and clear. this paper is short paper please make it has more info. let me know if you have any questions before you write the paper.
read the comment from the prof. (remember write a paper that explain clearly ) don
