 Categorical Imperative - Philosophy Dictionary of Arguments
Categorical Imperative: Kant's theorem from § 7 (Basic Law of Pure Practical Reason) in the Critique of Practical Reason. "Act in such a way that the maxim of your will at any given time could at the same time be regarded as a principle of general legislation." (German, "Handle so, dass die Maxime deines Willens jederzeit zugleich als Prinzip einer allgemeinen Gesetzgebung gelten könne.") The categorical imperative occurs in Kant’s work in several different formulations. See also ethics, morals, principles, laws, actions, cognitivism.
