(c) Rule-based ethics
(d) Classical ethics

    It is sometimes described as “duty” or “obligation” or “rule” based ethics, because rules “bind you to your duty”. The term “deontological” was first used in this way in 1930, in C.D. Broad’s book, Five Types of Ethical Theory.
    Deontological ethics is commonly contrasted with consequentialist or teleological ethical theories, according to which the rightness of an action is determined by its consequences.
