Rule Deontology

In Normative Ethical Theory a sub-group of deontological theories that maintain that the good, and therefore moral obligation, are necessarily linked to some set of objective rules.

Both Kantianism and the Divine Command Theory would be examples of rule deontological morality.

The alternative family of deontological moral theory is called Act Deontology, and includes Existentialism, Situational Ethics, and Intuitionism.
