Best Answer Mr. Happy says
But, Immanuel Kant argues that it is never morally justified to tell a lie. In his example, Kant would argue that you could not morally lie to the killer. With Kant, the context does not matter.
lol This is where philosophy is fun: ""Act only in accordance with that maxim through which you can at the same time will that it become a universal law." - Would saving a life not be a maxim able to become a universal law?
I see what you are saying. If saving a life and not lying are both universal laws and they contradict in a certain circumstance, it is up to our better moral judgment to choose the correct maxim to follow. Well, done. *applause*
