Dunno - a "teleological" theory is one which only considers the consequences generated by people's actions, while deontological theories (such as Kantian Ethics) involve people's duties.

Whose version of it? Aristotle = teleological.

Aquinas = a mixture of the two. Primary precepts are teleological insofar as they guide toward our final aim (telos) of living in happiness with God. Secondary precepts are deontological because they rely on your own practical reason to derive them from the PPs.
