Kantianism, by contrast, claims that the core of ethics is to treat all persons-or, in Joel Marks's view, all living beings-as ends-in-themselves. While acknowledging the intuitive appeal of utilitarianism's core conviction-that we should always do what is for the best-Marks argues that this is an impossible injunction to fulfill, or even to attempt to fulfill, because all of the relevant results of our actions can never be known.
