Section 10, Group 2 Kant Touch This

Today in our discussion, we talked about if moral decisions should be made on an emotional basis. We also talked about how morality cannot always be cut and dry, as our world is not black and white but is rather a gray area. We talked about circumstances under which the "moral" thing to do falls within a gray area, and how we make moral decisions when faced with a gray area.
