Basically this students choice if he copied his roommates paper would not be consistent with the Moral Law as understood by Immanuel Kant through his work Grounding for the Metaphysics of Morals Kants concept of the moral law is basically one philosophers attempt to rationalize and formulate a theory that would explain human actions and their causation when a person is faced with a decision Kant infers that since we all make decisions there must be a given or a priori set of operations or rationale of reason we all follow in judging and making moral decisions He is clear to point out that this line of reasoning may not apply to everyone rather these formulae and conjectures are judgments that apply to any typical or average human being Having said all of that in regard to the specific questions at hand whether or not the philosophy student should copy his roommates paper we can apply Kants fundamental and formulaic principle of morality in making our decision In this case I believe we can expand our judgments of this individuals character even further than simply an average human being Kant tells us that almost all humans obey the laws because they are motivated by the laws themselves Laws are created in every society for the most part with the idea that the laws would protect and prevent its people from harm So utilizing this reasoning in a functioning society its safe to assume that most people within that society would agree with and want to obey the laws pertaining to their society In our society in America the local and national government have created a set of laws some are grand and revered such as the Constitution and others may be as simple as a new stoplight at a local intersection Either way our complacence with each law elucidates our respect for the law and in turn our actions are dictated by our subconscious acceptance
