Had the potential to be a decent porn script, but the money shots never really hit the mark.
Immanuel Kant asks and also answers the most difficult questions about how we ethically perform, act, and behave. He imposes that whatever act you commit you should take into consideration the question, what if my act became a universal law? Would it benefit all of mankind or just me? He also distinguishes the difference between a categorical imperative and a hypothetical one. All of this alludes to the laws that have been handed down towards us to construct the fundamentals of morality as we should know it.
