John Dailey Posted January 4, 2008 Share Posted January 4, 2008 (edited) ~ I don't think that the issue is properly seen as if analogized to "A hired/asked B to kill C: who is the more evil? A, the hirer (director/teacher) or B, the trigger-man?" This is a conundrum few agree on the answer to. No point debating it (or its like) here.~ Kant used reason to invalidate its worth as applicable to moral/ethic probs; most agree this was his main motivation in his Critique, I believe: making room for faith. I think Rand's main prob with Kant wasn't so much what doors he opened for irrationalists to make hay with, so much as his closing the door on morality for reason-oriented ones who, like Rand, had to bust through to get anywhere. Irrationalists did follow his justifications; rationalists were at a loss if following his reasons that reason was inapplicable to ethics/morals...'till Rand came along. Too bad there was no Aristotle immediately post-Kant.LLAPJ:D Edited January 4, 2008 by John Dailey Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
