    Thus, in Sophie's Choice, Sophie is an appealing person because she wants to do what is right and is emotionally torn by the moral dilemmas in which she finds herself. I will end by describing the advantages of using the word "ought" in a non‑emphatic fashion, and not in a special "moral" sense; of discarding the term "wrong" in a "moral" sense, and using such notions as "unjust."

    Second, it is not human beings per se but the “humanity” in human beings that we must treat as an end in itself. Example o Telling a lie that has no negative effect on anyone and saves someone grief is good. Hence there arises a natural dialectic, i. e. a disposition, to argue against these strict laws of duty and to question their validity, or at least their purity and strictness; and, if possible, to make them more accordant with our wishes and inclinations, that is to say, to corrupt them at their very source, and entirely to destroy their worth—a thing which even common practical reason cannot ultimately call good.
