  Kant held that any moral judgement about a particular is universalizable to all similar particulars. That is, if I judge that ‘Tom ought to keep his marriage vows’, then I commit myself to the universal judgement that ‘everyone in the same position as Tom ought to keep their marriage vows’. R. M. Hare has claimed that a judgement is a moral judgement only if it is universalizable. AJ
