Literature Review on (Ethics) Deontology

In the Encyclopedia of Public Administration and Public Policy, [1] James R. Heichelbech offers the following summary about the topic of (Ethics) Deontology: Deontology differs from utilitarianism insofar as it specifically excludes consequences as a basis for moral judgment, whereas utilitarianism claims that only consequences can serve to ground morality. The practical manifestations of deontology generally focus on principles and obligations, with attention to compliance and enforcement.
