A friend wonders.

Tell that to the Russian who got shot in a quarrel over Kant’s philosophy. Here:

A police spokeswoman in Rostov-on Don, Viktoria Safarova, said two men in their 20s were discussing Kant as they stood in line to buy beer at a small store on Sunday. The discussion deteriorated into a fistfight and one participant pulled out a small nonlethal pistol and fired repeatedly.

Last, we heard, his injuries were not life-threatening.

Note: Kant was the author of Critique of Pure Reason

I wonder if the shooting was a categorical imperative. Barb
