For example, in section one of the Groundwork, Kant claims that actions have moral worth only if they are done from the motive of duty alone; and he distinguishes between acting from the motive of duty and acting in order to satisfy some inclination, the latter of which cannot play any role in determining one's will if one's action is to have moral worth.
In addition, inclination angle ([beta]) is a significant port design parameter strongly affecting burner performance.
The differences of the registered images are considered as [increment of x] and [increment of y] increments and the plummet length, taken into consideration, allow to calculate angles of the plummet inclination ([alpha]).
Inclination function can be configured for analog as well as single- or 2-step drives, and same applies to HBC Micro Joystick.
Honnefelder presents his theory of a "two-stage operation" of the practical reason in order to explain the relation between practical reason and natural inclination; in his approach "reason is constituted as practical, previous to any approach to a natural inclination or corresponding appetitive goal and the goods formulated through it." (52) Similarly, Wieland's separation of the pre-rational aspects of human nature from reason is founded on the "two-stage operation of the practical reason." (53) According to Rhonheimer, their mistake is to deny what for Aquinas can be called the "naturally rational" or an "intelligible inclination." (54) Honnefelder avoids addressing key questions of natural law: "[W]hat is the 'naturally rational,' and what is 'naturally good for man?'....
Various physiologic factors could affect the inclination of incisors such as age,7 inclination of the associated alveolar bone,3,10,11 cancellous bone thickness,3,11 depth of the mandibular symphysis,7,10 and perioral soft tissue structures.12-14 Incisors inclination also varies among different skeletal malocclusions.
Crown inclination had been defined by Andrews in "The six keys to normal occlusion" based on his study of 120 adults with normal occlusion.
One of the substantial angles of the sagittal plane contour is the sacral inclination. As a consequence of sacral inclination, one avoids the extreme angular changes that will occur in the sacrum with the lordotic curve that comes along with the lumbar vertebrae.
It builds relatively small webs that show a large variation in inclination. In this study, we observed webs ranging from 5[degrees] to 85[degrees] (but with 85% of 430 measured webs between 408 and 60[degrees]).
Two-way ANOVA reveals that cusp inclination significantly affected the VH (p = 0.001) and DC (p < 0.001) of the resin cement (Tables 4 and 5).
The cutting conditions for the machining experiment are shown in Table 2, with the same machining parameters except for inclination and machining directions.
This study aimed to analyze the effects on the stress and load distribution of the lateral compartment induced by lower limb alignment and coronal inclination of the tibial component in UKA through a finite element analysis.
A various number of investigations have been conducted to address the full understanding of the parameters (working fluids, inclination angle, heat input, and filling ratio..
In this paper, we present the results of a study showing the influence of real mill-axis inclination on 3D surface texture.
