IMMANUEL KANT (DEONTOLOGY) 2 Introduction Deontology theory notes that humans are morally constrained to work according to a specific outlined regulations and principles regardless of the results. According to religious deontology these principles derive from celestial commandment; hence under laws of religion, humans are morally constrained not to bear false witness, kill, steal, or deceive. Hence, deontological duties and hypotheses have been in life for many decades. Immanuel Kant, a deontologist, is the celebrated proponent of theory and developed the most powerful type of secular moral theory of deontology in 1788 (Brophy, 2018). Contrary to religious theory of deontology, the maxims or regulations in the deontological presumption of Kant draw from human reasoning. This paper describes in detail how Kant developed his ideas and significance of those ideas to philosophical progress and human understanding. Immanuel Kant, Immanuel Kant was a Germany philosopher (1724-1804) who was referred by many as one of the greatest modern philosophers and deontological ethics’ defender. Kant lived such a disciplined and austere life, which the persons of his city were reported to have set their clocks through his walks’ punctuality. Kant waking up at 4 a.m, taught, studied, wrote, and read a whole day. Kant was a talented mathematician, an astronomer, and metaphysician, celebrated ethicists and epistemologist of all the time, and in most ways a crowning enlightenment figure (Brophy, 2018). In the era of enlightenment, the civilization of European celebrated the concept that human reasoning was adequate to understand, restructure, and interpret the world. Kant emerged as the greatest rationalist who defended the view in both his ethics besides, epistemology using the motto being “dare to think.”

IMMANUEL KANT (DEONTOLOGY) 3 In understanding Kant, they could briefly consider his abrupt predecessor Hume (1711- 1776). David awakened Kant’s dogmatic slumber to compel him to regard his earlier beliefs (Misselbrook, 2013). Skepticism of Hume had dared everything in that enlightenment stood, and the biggest and most persistent skeptic to be produced in the western world. He claimed that Christianity is nothing and science was tentative, the foundation of sense of understanding was undefined. Hence, ethics become subjective.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
