Quote of the week - Immanuel Kant on the metaphysics of morality

"A metaphysics of morals is therefore indispensably necessary, not merely because of a motive to speculation — for investigating the source of the practical basic principles that lie a priori in our reason — but also because morals themselves remain subject to all sorts of corruption as long as we are without that clue and supreme norm by which to appraise them correctly..."

- Immanuel Kant, Groundwork of the Metaphysics of Morals (1785)
