DescriptionFrom Cicero and Augustine through the middle ages and into the Reformation, this Very Short Introduction considers conscience as a matter of human rights and obligations, as well as an important issue in contemporary politics. Written by Paul Strohm, an eminent authority in the field and an engaging writer, this compact book provides a thought provoking introduction to a compelling topic. Arranged chronologically to focus on a series of important moments in the history of conscience--from Augustine's episode of conscience to the rise of conscience as a secular ideal--the volume explores a wide variety of texts and events, providing a concise introduction to the evolution of ideas and debates about conscience.
