Beyond conscience by Thomas Vernor Smith( Book )

"To have convictions and yet to live with those who have others, or none, is the last achievement of man, as it is the first mark of civilization. Conscience, if stunted, reverts to barbarism in a pinch, whatever its prevailing veneer of culture. And conscience is always stunted unless it transcends itself. Civilization, consequently, lies somewhere beyond conscience. Where it lies and how, it is our purpose presently to enquire. But first we must reveal man's moral sense to itself, neither pitying its weakness nor condoning its wickedness. It is an ancient doctrine, from which conscience has exempted only itself, that none can wear a crown who has not borne the cross. Conscience must be made to face its cross, for the sake of man and his future. These are bold words. If they can be shown true, they may make man brave against his final enemy, himself. To show them true is here our first concern. To do this we must nerve ourselves to track to their lair the philosophers, not forgetting the theologians, who have assured men that almost their worst is actually their very best. This will be no easy task, but it will not be without excitement. With that said, the current text is comprised of 10 chapters concerning the following topics: the morphology and orientation of conscience; the theological implementation of conscience; the idealistic implementation of conscience; the sociological implementation of conscience; the metaphysical implementation of conscience; the logical implementation of conscience; the aesthetic finality of conscience; solipsims and social order; dialectical behaviorism and social order; and oughtness and order"--Preface.
