How is morality possible
How is categorical imperative possible

::If the utilitarian is true, if I am the only subject of the deliverances of my sense, the pain, the pleasure, the pain and appetite, if that’s all there were to humanity, we wouldn’t be freedom because in that case every exercise of will would be conditioned by the desire for some objects::

How is categorical imperative possible
Only because the idea of freedom makes myself as members of intelligible world.

::It is because of the two standpoints that the realm of freedom and the real of necessity, there is always potentially a gap between what we do and what we ought to do::

A lie and a misleading truth
Kant based morality not on consequenlist but on moral law
