Is conscience an inherent animal instinct or a cultivated quality, unique to sentient beings?
A related issue is human consciousness without conscience (refer 'egosyntonic' - a symptom of nazism, for example).
An exemplary definition for 'good', for example, is:
'that which benefits the most number of persons for the longest period of time'.
A definition for 'bad', is:
'that which causes undue harm to a person or people.'
These - conscience related, 'good & bad' - issues are wide spectrum subjects with various focal points.
May this discussion include the related panoramic - as well as the pinpointed - considerations.
What are the differences, similiarities and relationships involving values of 'good', 'bad', and 'conscience' (the facility of knowing 'right' from 'wrong')
