  Deontology  Deontology  The normative ethical position that judges the morality of an action based on the action's adherence to a rule or set of rules.  It is sometimes described as duty or obligation or rule -based ethics, because rules bind you to your duty .  Deontological ethics is commonly contrasted to consequentialism and pragmatic ethics.  The term deontological was first used by C. D. Broad in his book, Five Types of Ethical Theory in 1930.  Some Deontological philosophies:  Kantianism / Kantian ethics by Immanuel Kant  Moral Absolutism  Divine Command Theory  Contemporary Deontology  Kantianism Immanuel Kant's theory of ethics is considered deontological for several reasons.   Kant argues that to act in the morally right way, people must act from duty .   Kant argued that it was not the consequences of actions that make them right or wrong but the motives  of the person who carries out the action.  The Argument is that the highest good must be both good in itself   and good without qualification.
