i. No, because ethics apply to everyone equally . There are no exceptions b. The Moral = The Rational 3. Deontology a. From the Greek word “ deon ” which means “duty or obligation” and the Greek word logos ” which means “study of” i. So, a deontology is a “study of duty” 1. Kant’s addition is to make the concept of duty the basis for his ethical theory a. Therefore, the study of duty [deontology] is the study of our ethical duty b. Our duty comes from our Will – inside of us, not from outside 4. Kant’s Moral Metaphysic a. The ought of imperatives 1. Humans require an ‘ought’ because our will is imperfect. Despite our knowledge of the objective character of moral law, we still fail to will what we ‘ought’ to will ii. Hypothetical Imperatives – these are possible actions that achieve a goal 1. A (the will) -> possible actions 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, etc. -> B (Goal) a. Each possible action is only instrumentally good 2. Categorical Imperative – provide the ONLY necessary link between the will and its goal a. A -> only on right action -> B (Goal) i. This action is good in-itself, so the goal doesn’t really matter
