Kant had nothing to say about environmental ethics and had little understanding of the suffering of animals and thus held a truncated view of our obligations to animals. But the biggest challenge to the Kantian ethic is that the Kantian ethic is too demanding. Let us consider that objection at greater length. The purity of motive It is a central tenet of Kant’s moral philosophy that an action is only truly moral if it is morally motivated. Truly moral actions cannot be contaminated by motives of selfinterest.

Critics also allege that act utilitarianism does not adequately take into consideration individuals’ rights when determining whether an act is morally right. For example, suppose executive X in company Q has worked for months to secure a contract between Q and another company D. Whether the contract is signed depends heavily on what X does, for negotiations are at a crucial stage. If the contract is signed, Q and D will increase profits and new jobs will be created. During final negotiations, Q’s president by chance discovers that X has embezzled $50,000 from Q.
