The first premise is that a person acts morally if his or her conduct would, without condition, be the “right” conduct for any person in similar circumstances (the “First Maxim”). 2. The second premise is that conduct is “right” if it treats others/yourself as ends in themselves/yourself and not as means to an end (the “Second Maxim”). 3.
