nimble Posted November 30, 2006 Report Share Posted November 30, 2006 I recently found myself tangling with something really difficult that I thought I had the answer to, but didn't. I always thought that morality was completely contextual (composed of hypothetical imperatives), but then I realized I couldn't justify saying that non-aggression is always in your best interest in all circumstances or else that would be a categorical imperative. I don't know how an Objectivist would justify such a claim without resorting to the Kantian notion that what is objectively bad if everyone does it is implicitly bad if one person does it, thus it must be a categorical imperative to stay away from x action.
