He focused on someone's sense of duty, meaning what they feel they ought to do they must do. He emphasised the importance of human reason in making ethical decisions over emotion. 4. In what ways can duty be seen as the basis of

ethical decision-making? 5KU 4. In what ways can duty be seen as the basis of ethical decision-making? 5ku Kantian ethics is based upon the teachings of the philosopher, Immanuel Kant (17241804) consisting of the importance of duty, good will and the categorical imperative. Kants theory of ethics is deontological meaning that an action is good or bad, right or wrong by something within the action itself. Focus is on the morality of actions and disregards the consequences of an action. It is absolute since the morality of an action takes no regard of the situation it is in. Stress on duty and obligation - to Kant, the concept of motive is the most important factor

in determining what is ethical. More specifically, Kant argued that a moral action is one that is performed out of a sense of duty, i.e. this is what I must/should do. Grounded in the highest form of good will. To have good will is to perform ones duty and not by considering the consequences. It is good-in-itself. Good-will fostered by a human being acting rationally- using reason. Importance of intention motive is reason not action, eliminating any notion of emotions which undermine rational decision-making. The categorical imperative helps us to know which actions are obligatory and which are forbidden. For Kant, the only moral imperatives were categorical: I should to do x, with no reference to desires or needs.

Universal principle. "Act only according to that maxim by which you can at the same time will that it should become a universal law" Humans as ends - not merely as means Sample Answer Duty can be used as a basis of ethical decision making through Kantian Ethics. These ethics put forward by Immanuel Kant are deontological meaning that an action is good or bad, right or wrong by something within the action itself. Morality in this case is absolute as the moral action is

right or wrong regardless of different situations. Duty comes into Kantian ethics by what you ought to do is what you should do. Your good will is your motive behind the action. Kantian ethics emphasise using human reason rather than emotion when making a decision. It is someones duty not to treat people as a means to an end.
