Expressing a Good Will: Kant on the Motive of Duty

Southern Journal of Philosophy 34 (2):147-168 (1996)
Abstract
If any action is to be morally good it is not enough that it should conform to the moral law-it must also be done for the sake of the moral law: where this is not so, the conformity is only too contingent and precarious, since the nonmoral ground at work will now and then produce actions which accord with the law, but very often actions which transgress it.
