Immanuel kant: act so that you treat humanity, whether in your own person or in that of another"s (or one"s own), always as an end and never as a means only. Treat humanity as a being that can choose their own pursuits (capacity to be reflective) Autonomy capacity to choice own pursuit (self government) Kantianism says you can treat people as a means, but not as a means only.
