Immanuel Kant was a late 18th century German Philosopher who has had a significant influence in moral philosophy, as well as in other areas of Philosophy.
His main aims in his moral philosophy were to provide an account or theory of the moral rightness of action (a theory of how we should determine when an act is right/wrong), and to provide a theory of the moral worth of action (a theory of how we should determine when a person is morally good).
