Natural Law involves using reason to work out morally correct behaviour in accordance with the goal of being human and is usually regarded as being deontological and absolutist

  • It is deontological because what should be done is seen as being determined by fundamental principles that are not based on consequences
  • It is absolutist because the right action is identified by means of the primary precepts
