Philosophy Assignment - Kantian Ethics

Hello Young Philosophers,
As a continuation of our discussion on Ethics, particularly the modernists and deontological theorists, have a look at the Critique of Practical Reason (Immanuel Kant) on Wikipedia and try to answer the following questions:-
  • How & why does he distinguish between practical reason & theoretical reason?
  • Examine what he means by the Categorical Imperative. Examine the argument wherein he declares the Categorical Imperative as the Universal Moral Law. Do you agree that it is indeed universal (check the consequent pages)
This should take you a few hours of research & pondering. Blog your answers/thoughts as comments to this post.
