Question

There are two separate assignments (300 words each) below, (1) refection (2) interpretation and Explanation the Quote.

(1) You must reflect on the module specified in the assignment instructions. Think about two things you learned that week that specifically impacted you. These do not have to be things that I said. These may be things that you learned from other students, or something that you had a negative reaction to, or something else that came to mind as a result of material from this course. Write about these in the form of a journal entry. Describe why these things are important to you, and how you think they may be applicable to your life. Part of this assignment is to have a conversation about one of the things you learned with someone – anyone that is not currently in this class. This person might be a parent, friend, sibling, roommate, coworker, etc. Tell them what you are learning, and ask for their opinion about it. In your journal, you must briefly describe that conversation. journal entry should be the around 300 words, single-spaced with reasonable font and margins (if you are not sure about this, just use 12 point font with one inch margins).

(2)   interpret and explain this quote Kant: "Finally, there is an imperative which commands a certain conduct immediately, without having as its condition any other purpose to be attained by it. This imperative is categorical" (3a).

You probably will want to read the text or surrounding paragraphs several times before you begin. paper should be the around 300 words, single-spaced with reasonable font and margins (if you are not sure about this, just use 12 point font with one inch margins).

Journal Entry
I find the idea that the goodness of one’s will is more fundamental to morality than the consequences of one’s actions both intriguing and, if I’m being honest with myself, deeply troubling. And what’s worse is that I wasn’t sure why it troubled me. So I decided to talk to Mom. I described to her what we were learning about Kant and the idea of the good will, as well as the notion of deontology...
