In this article, I want to show the main directions of the moral distinction between the noumenal and the phenomenal human beings, distinction that was first made by philosopher Immanuel Kant. The thesis that I want to prove concerns the fact that this distinction is methodological and not ontological, although it may appear so at the first contact with the Kantian philosophy. In order to demonstrate my thesis, I will put emphasis on the following subjects: the reason and the will of the phenomenal human being, the objective laws of the morals, The Kingdom of the Ends that Kant builds and the Categorical Imperative.
