J. David Velleman, "A Brief Introduction to Kantian Ethics"

  1. What is a practical requirement that you can escape called?
      a. A categorical imperative
      b. A categorical incentive
      c. A hypothetical imperative
      d. A hypothetical incentive
  2. Why does Velleman think that it is self-defeating to ask why you should be moral?
      a. If you're asking why you should be moral, then you're asking for a reason to be moral. But if you're asking for a reason to be moral, then you've already conceded that reason is authoritative for you.
      b. If you're asking why you should be moral, then you're not the sort of person to whom morality really applies because if you were, you'd be able to appreciate the pull of morality.
      c. If you're asking why you should be moral, then aren't aware of the Categorical Imperative.
      d. If you're asking why you should be moral, then you already think that there is no reason for you to care about morality.
  3. According to Velleman, reasons are
      a. Particular
      b. Neutral
      c. Hypothetical
      d. Universal
