Abstract and Keywords

This article argues in favour of the application of a Kantian approach in character education. It elaborates on Fitzwilliam Darcy's concept of truth which means that to be good, it is not enough to follow good principles and to follow them from duty. It explains the compatibility of Darcy's truth with Kantian ethics and suggests that being good involves having the rights attitudes, feelings, and ways of viewing oneself and others.

Keywords: character education, Kantian approach, Fitzwilliam Darcy, truth, Kantian ethics
