Deontological Ethics: Assessment

  • Jan Österberg
Part of the Philosophical Studies Series book series (PSSP, volume 138)


In Chap.  1, I claimed that CSM is the archetype and source of D. In Chap.  2, I tried to characterize and explain this central version of D, especially what I called its “deontological features”; I also tried to identify the core of CSM, which I baptized CSM*. In this chapter, I shall begin the task of critically evaluating CSM* (a task to be continued in Chap.  7).
