Immanuel Kant - Theory/Ethics

  1. 0
    I'm doing research on the moral & ethical theory of Immanuel Kant.

    The primary principle of Kant’s ethics, “the duty to act” primary means that it everyone’s duty to do what is right just because it is the right thing to do, without any ulterior motive. The outcome of the act, whether it is good or bad has no reflection on whether the person act was right or not, as long as it was done with the right intentions.

    Does anyone know how this theory is applied/or it's usefullness in today's healtchare setting?

    I'm sorry, but we really can't answer your homework questions. What do YOU think? There are many good articles in the nursing news section you could reference.

    This is obvious your medical ethics assignment. This class is one where you should be doing all you own work. This is the class that is the foundation that teaches you CRITICAL THINKING. This not something you should be asking others to do for you. If a patient is in need of a critical intervention, your not going to tell them to hold it while you google AN. You must be an active participant. Read your assignments in Kant and digest what he is trying to say and then do your own application. Your instructor will tell you if it is correct or not- that what they get paid to. This is not the class to play hookie on.. This is the cornerstone of your 'BSN' nursing education. But what the he** would I know- I'm an old 1980 diploma grad.

    And....as Kant would say...it's the right thing to do, to do your own homework!

    Can you tell us what you are thinking? A lively discussion would be nice, but I'm not going to do your homework.

    Maybe she Kant ... or is it that she needs experience in order to have an experience. To discuss Kant in the text of todays health care system could prove to be lively. All his writings have been reinterpreted for years according to who ever is interpreting them ... kind of like the Bible. To me he was like the yuppy of then modern philosophy. Here's a link that may enlighten ...
