Abstract [en]

We argue that humans have at least three basic instincts, the instinct of selfishness, of belongingness and of duty. We explore the instinct of duty through describing its origin in Kantian moral thinking and through extracting some implications of duty through analysing three persons and their actions. We believe that we make duty a reasonable category of human action, if not an instinct of humans, using evolutionary arguments in order to support our thesis. We indicate opportunities of empirically studying duty through offering testable hypotheses and suggestions of empirical design. Thus, we claim that management science can include Kant and action due to duty in the arsenal of explanations of human behaviour.
