ABSTRACT

“There is no witness so terrible and no accuser so powerful as conscience which dwells within us”- this quote by Sophocles explains conscience truly. A miniature invisible “true self” resides in us who is judgmental of our actions, the judgment passed by the true self is a moral guide to us. The Conscience is a vital part of our human persona. In this paper, we shall explore what does conscience mean, how did it evolve its awareness in us and keeps us conscious of its presence at all times. Is conscience the same as consciousness? Our senses get the processing done in the brain, even thoughts get processed in the brain-does conscience have some specific areas allotted for its processing. Conscience has many facets and we shall explore these facets.
