Law - Formal
- Will is unconditionally good, puts other things to good use
-Inclinations are not the same
-Reason IS within our control according to Kant
-Everyone should be able to determine when there is a contradiction or not – formal reason
For an action to have moral worth, it must be the case that reason is determining the will (you are free).
You are not entirely free when using inclination because you are susceptible to things outside of your
control- psychology wins out over you.
Respecting the law of reason: in our formal capacity as a human being
When it comes to inclination, laws are external- but when it comes to reason, we are law makers. We
are following laws and they are laws of our own making
