dc.description.abstract In this thesis my aim is to provide an analysis of Kantian Morality from virtue ethics perspective. Kantian morality is commonly misinterpreted, and regarded in an over-simplified and caricaturized manner. As a result of this unfair reading, it is subjected to several criticisms from virtue ethicists. Nevertheless, a deeper analysis of Kantian morality seems to provide a defense against these accusations. Therefore, to evaluate this possibility firstly I give an account of these criticisms under eight categories. Secondly, I examine basic components of Kantian morality. From here I conclude that, it is wrong to think Kantian morality as a stagnant rule-following. Under the light of given arguments; I claim that it is possible to consider ethics of deontology as compatible with authenticity, perfection and constant self-retrospection.
