Abstract

The purpose of this article is to analyze the way in which three moral philosophers – Aquinas, Hume, Kant – have approached the relationship between moral norm and social change. To this aim, I take as a point of reference the institutionalization of the moral norm in the traditional division of duties ; this approach reveals itself as a promising path, to explore the way in which modern social theory has recognized the effect of social change on the strength with which the moral bond presents itself in consciences.
