The aim of this paper is to present a reflection on the concept of virtue in Immanuel Kant,philosopher of the eighteenth century. It is intended to show the scope of action of the designconcept of virtue establishing the difference between the doctrine of law and the doctrine of virtue.We discuss, among other things, the definition of virtue, the universal principles of metaphysics ofmorals in the treatment of a doctrine of pure reason and the difference between the doctrine ofvirtue and the duties of virtue. We write about the understanding of Kant regarding to the practice ofvirtue seen as a moral habit, which is distinguished by a repetition of the habit of unthinking actions.We still refer to the similarities on the design of a concept of good will and the design of the conceptof virtue, but also emphasize the importance of good will to the practice of moral law within themoral theory of Kant.
