Conscience and Politics.
Stevens, Richard G.
Teaching Political Science, v11 n4 p171-81 Sum 1984
The meaning and understanding of conscience in political thought are examined. The problem of distinguishing apparent and real conscience and private and public judgment is illustrated by contrasting the acts of conscience of Socrates and Thomas More with the rejection of private judgment against the state in Hobbes and Locke.
