Sample text

A categorical rule/principle is one that is always applied in the same way in all cases. This categorical nature is the distributive property of such a principle. Both Kant and Dowd argue for a categorical nature to morality. It is a strength because little deliberation is required by either theory when determining the morally correct action. The strength is in the consistency of the principle – it is categorical. The weakness of the arguments presented by both Kant and Dowd is in the justification of such a principle – should it be categorical?
