The requirement of impartiality is a defining feature of any Kantian approach to morality. The precise nature of this requirement and its impact on the moral agent are the subject of an ongoing debate, but generally the focus of this debate is on whether the impartial perspective alienates the agent from herself, her ground projects, or her close personal relations. Given that impartiality apparently requires this sort of equal concern, it is obvious that one's capacity to promote one's ground projects, including personal relationships, would suffer from lack of attention and commitment. The proper application of impartial principles requires certain sensitivity to the particular concerns, needs, attitudes, likes, and dislikes of the specific person involved. Although critics of impartiality are convinced that being guided by principles in the context of personal relationships leads to moral insensitivity, it is more plausible that partiality will have this result.
