Hume’s “naturalistic fallacy” is the idea that
What is Kant referring to when he says, “[it] is not good because of what it effects or accomplishes or because of its adequacy to achieve some proposed end; it is good only because of its willing, i.e. it is good of itself.”

Who is the author of the following text? “”Since reason alone can never produce any action, or give rise to volition, I infer, that the same faculty is as incapable of preventing volition, or of disputing the preference with any passion or emotion. This consequence is necessary.”
Who is the author of the following text? “The presumed objectivity of moral judgments thus being a chimera, there can be no moral truth in the sense in which this term is generally understood.

Who offers us this story to illustrate a point about morality? “I will refer to a pupil of mine, who sought me out in the following circumstances. His father was quarreling with his mother and was also inclined to be a ‘collaborator’; his elder brother had been killed in the German offensive of 1940 and this young man, with a sentiment somewhat primitive but generous, burned to avenge him. His mother was living with him, deeply afflicted by the semi-treason of his father and by the death of her eldest son, and her one consolation was in this young man. But he, at this moment, had the choice between going to England to join the Free French Forces or of staying near his mother and helping her to live.”
