Study Notes on Kant’s Ethics

“Medical Ethics” and “Introduction to Ethics” can be challenging courses for students here at DCTC. Students are asked to study ethical theories directly from philosophers’ works, which are many times written in difficult language. Kant, above all, speaks in a dense, foreign style that confuses the average reader. His major ethical work, “Groundwork to the Metaphysics of Morals,” has been notoriously difficult to pave through; therefore, I have taken the time to develop a few pages of notes on the “Metaphysics” which hopefully can alleviate some pain for students struggling through this text.

Below are the attachments. Enjoy and please contact me with any questions!
