ESSAY 2: up to 30 points MINIMUM 500 words – 3 paragraphs

In your own words, using support from your textbook readings: Which ONE of the 2 Ancient views influenced Immanuel Kant’s philosophy? EXPLAIN HOW (similarities).


We discussed two on Ethics and Justice from:

John Stuart Mill and Jeremy Bentham Utility Ethics and Utilitarian Justice

Immanuel Kant – Rationalist Theory of Value and Retributive Justice.

These modern philosophers and their theories were each clearly influenced in many ways by ONE of the two Ancient groups of thinkers we recently studied: The Epicureans OR The Stoics. While the modern views are not an exact copy of the ancients, there are many examples of the inspiration and similar thinking that can be connected between the Ancients and the Moderns.
