Kavka's toxin puzzle is a thought experiment about the possibility of forming an intention to perform an act which, following from reason, is an action one would not actually perform. It was presented by moral and political philosopher Gregory S. Kavka in "The Toxin Puzzle" (1983), and grew out of his work in deterrence theory and mutual assured destruction. Kavka is also well known for his Paradox of Future Individuals, which addresses our moral obligation to future persons to plan for the future now. His slave child example also displays the deontological concept that holds humans as "beyond price", therefore they should never be used as a mere means, but rather as an end.
