It basically focuses on acts that would be seen in light of "goodness". It sets ideals that are expected to be followed under all circumstances serving as being the duties that an individual should live by. This type of reasoning is what makes up the commandments-Thou shalt not steal. Knowing this a person wouldn't steal if wanting to take something.
