MORALITY AND SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY 2 Deontological theory The aim of Kant’s theory (Deontological theory) is to establish an organized approach towards morality regarding its formation, judgment of actions and their analysis regarding moral legitimacy. Kant’s theory is based on reason. According to him, the ethic is based on rationality and that the most ethical behavior are always natural. This approach is also known as the categorical imperative in the sense that it comes out like a command. For instance, one should never lie. Comparatively, if you lie you won't gain trust, the vice versa is also true (Johnson, 2014). According to Kant, the belief that one has, to tell the truth, to gain trust isn’t much of a condition but sensible moral practice. However, according to his, morality is unconditional. You chose, to tell the truth, to gain true or lie. Conditional morals bind a person o say or do the right thing due to the consequence and not because they are expected to.

    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.
