Discuss deontology (also known as “duty-” or “rule-“based ethics). You may choose to look at the original works of Immanuel Kant, the preeminent deontological philosopher, if you desire. However, I recommend starting with Onora O’Neill’s “A Simplified Account of Kant’s Ethics,” as well as the SEP’s (Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy’s) entry on the subject, as they are more digestible.
You will first need to provide a definition for deontology, followed by a summary of its main tenets (along with examples that elucidate their application). Then, you will need to convince me why deontology is the superior ethical theory and defend your opinion against potential criticism.
Make sure to use APA format.
