Positive Duties, Kant’s Universalizability Tests, and Contradictions

Download Edit this record How to cite View on PhilPapers
Abstract
In this paper I am going to raise a problem for recent attempts to derive positive duties from Kant’s universalizability tests. In particular, I argue that these recent attempts are subject to reductio and that the most obvious way of patching them renders them impracticable. I begin by explaining the motivation for these attempts. Then I describe how they work and begin my attack. I conclude by considering some patches.
