Ethical normativity and personal responsibility [1/4]

Moral duty may become concrete by distinguishing what is morally good or bad and identifying why.
However, the science of positivist morality reduces itself to considering only what it is and how.
Rather, from the experience of morality, ethics seeks duty, by norming, performing and structuring it with originality and creativity, to achieve in the best way the good, up to the gift.
