How Can The Conscience Have A Moral Pattern?

Decent Essays

We have a conscience. Basically, if we do what is good, we feel well. If we do what is bad, we feel bad. There is no way to deny this truth. The conscience itself bring us to something, I mean, help us to conclude about actions or words that we have done/said.
