The Pentagon’s New Cyber Strategy: Defend Forward

Immanuel Kant’s Legal Philosophy and Lies to Murderers and Nazis

Anoop Verma at The Verma Report - 14 hours ago
Immanuel Kant’s writing on lying to a murder at the door seems to suggest that he believed that it is always wrong to lie and that one must not lie even to a murderer asking for the whereabouts of his victim. After the Second World War, some scholars replaced the murderer at the door with a Nazi officer looking for Jews hidden in people’s homes, thus making an even grimmer interpretation of the Kantian position. In her essay, “Kant and Lying to the Murderer at the Door . . . One More Time: Kant’s Legal Philosophy and Lies to Murderers and Nazis,” Helga Varden shows that the traditi... more »

They vandalize and destroy property. They drive drunk. They pick fights with each other and perfect strangers. They assault women. They damage, ruin or destroy their lives and the lives of their victims. Most of these young men mature. They learn how to moderate their drinking or how to moderate their behavior when drinking.
