what even is that?
It’s the school of philosophy created by immanuel kant. A good example is his categorical imperative: Act as you would want all other people to act towards all other people. Act according to the maxim that you would wish all other rational people to follow, as if it were a universal law.Basically as an example, say a neighbor plants some vegetables. You decide to just steal a tomato. On its own, its not a big deal. But in this philosophy, you accept that anything you say and do, you automatically think it’s perfectly fine for everyone else to do it to you and everyone else. So whilst taking one tomato isn’t an issue, if everyone routinely stole vegetables from peoples gardens, that would cause a problem.
kinda sounds like an eye for an eye a nose for a nose
Only if you’re ok with someone doing that to you, your friends and anyone else.
for me it's if I don't like it or can't stand it to a certain extent I wouldn't do it to them
Good. Because the maxim means that anything you do, you accept that it’s ok for everyone to do as if it was a universal trait
