The Revenge of Conscience" is a well written, thoroughly reasoned approach to conscience (and its relation to politics) from a somewhat unique (but conservative) theological position (a position that is neither quite typically evangelical nor quite typically catholic). Budziszewski is obviously brilliant and his reasoning solid. In short, his basic thesis is that the underlying cause of many of the battlegrounds in our modern "culture wars" can be traced back to mankind's Fall (. sin) and continuing unwillingness to face the reality and consequences of that Fall.

Moreover, conscience comes not from without but from within: though . So conscience has its revenge

Moreover, conscience comes not from without but from within: though culture can trim the fringes, the core cannot be changed. So conscience has its revenge. We can’t not know the preciousness of human life-therefore, if we tell ourselves that humanity is a matter of degree, we can’t help holding those who are more human more precious than those who are less.

We propose and examine a theory of how the context of the political climate and incumbency interact to affect candidate strategies and their impact on candidate evaluations and the vote in presidential elections. From this theory, we generate four hypotheses. Two concern the difference between elections in which the incumbent runs as opposed to open seat races with a successor in-party candidate. The other two hypotheses concern the difference in evaluations of incumbents and successor candidates in open seat elections.

The Revenge of Conscience : Politics and the Fall of Ma.

By (author) J Budziszewski. Describing the political effects of Original Sin, Professor Budziszewski shows how man's suppression of his knowledge of right and wrong corrupts his conscience and accelerates social collapse. The author of ten scholarly books including What We Can't Not Know: A Guide and The Line Through the Heart: Natural Law as Fact, Theory, and Sign of Contradiction, he has also written three books for Christian young people. Format Paperback 162 pages.

Describing the political effects of Original Sin, Professor Budziszewski shows how man's suppression of his knowledge of right and wrong corrupts his conscience and accelerates social collapse. The depraved conscience grasps at the illusion of "moral neutrality" the absurd notion that men live together without a shared understanding of how things are. After evaluating the political devices, including the American Constitution, by which men have tried in the past to work around the effects of Original Sin, Dr. Budziszewski elucidates the pitfalls of contemporary communitarianism, liberalism, and conservatism.

A colleague and I were discussing the Greek notion of sophrosyne and its Christian counterpart sophronismos when he referred me to this book. I am thankful he did.

First, this is an absolute must read for Christian pastors, teachers, and any interested in politics. Budziszewski's thesis that conscience is suppressed not absent is persuasive. The many examples of how far the mind will go to rationalize disobedience will give you insight into what is happening in the US and why.

Second, I appreciate Budziszewski's distinctive call to Christian politics. Too many fall for the simplistic left-right or liberal-conservative paradigm when the Bible makes clear we are to turn neither to the left nor to the right.

In conclusion, this book impacted me greatly and is right up there with Herbert Schlossberg's Idols for Destruction. If I could, I would make it mandatory reading in all my classes.

"The Revenge of Conscience" is a well written, thoroughly reasoned approach to conscience (and its relation to politics) from a somewhat unique (but conservative) theological position (a position that is neither quite typically evangelical nor quite typically catholic).
Budziszewski is obviously brilliant and his reasoning solid. He defines conscience based upon Paul's description in the book of Romans about gentiles evidencing the "law of God written upon their hearts." He argues that evil is merely the spoiling of the good, and that our God-given conscience, when distorted, may actually reinforce evil instead of restraining it. He exposes the inconsistencies of today's pop value systems and devastates them with pure logic. Ouch!
The reader begins to understand the way those who reject Judeo-Christian values reason. At the heart of this distortion is our fallen condition which suppresses the "law of God written upon our hearts." He refutes the typical Roman Catholic distortion that seems to ignore the suppression of conscience and minimizes the effects of the fall upon human nature; he then contests the opposite imbalance typically held by the reformed position, namely a de-emphasis upon "the law is written upon the hearts" of even the unregenerate.
He addresses the distinction between the church's expectations of fellow believers and the church's expectation of society at large. This then leads Budziszewski to expose the erroneous paradigms proposed by political liberalism and political conservatism. This guy knows how to think, and it is tough to fault his logic.
This is a thought-provoking, deep book that requires readers to think. But it is a stimulating book, well worth the reading. Brilliant.

J. Budziszewski's mind is so superior, I can only assume God delights in giving him insight in order to enlighten the reader.

No, this is not a work you can hurriedly consume. You will want to slowly absorb and contemplate each idea as it is presented. It is not for anyone new to philosophy and is in fact the most complex book I have ever read that made complete sense.

The desire to underline every word was a great temptation. The variety in thought is at times a complete cerebral challenge. Your desire to understand the author's thoughts will not allow you to only "briefly" consider them.

My belief in a teacher who appears when you most desperately need one was reinforced even more when not only did this book come into my life, but I met someone who became almost an angel to me.

Not only did my mind travel to places I did not know existed, I traveled to places I wanted to go, had never been and didn't know how to find.

The Revenge of Conscience will answer questions that have been chained in the dungeons of your mind tormenting you until you find the answers. The topics discussed are relevant for today and will bring a greater understanding to those highly controversial subjects both conservatives and liberals debate in their daily existence. He approaches these subjects with sheer honesty, creativity and brilliance.

Budziszewski questions why we would want to rape our own conscience and deny ourselves the pure pleasure of truth. He shows how as a human race, we have far too often suppressed our knowledge of right and wrong. Therefore, corrupting our conscience, causing moral neutrality and social collapse.

He then presents a revealing look at how he thought as a nihilist, then logically shows his path to change. He holds a conversation with the deepest part of your soul in a similar way to how C.S. Lewis speaks truth you instantly recognize. This is not a book you will only want to read once. You may want to study it while having a dictionary and book like: The Story of Philosophy, close by.

In this revelation that we do know the basics of right and wrong, the author also shows why we wish we didn't. He also presents why reason can be perverted by passion, why we pay a high price for our rationalizations and why both liberals and conservatives commit moral errors. This book could not have come into my life at a more appropriate time.

"A great many modern people cling to the protection of views which are not merely false but incoherent; for instance, they dogmatically insist that truth cannot be known, all the while supposing that what they say is true. pg. 144

I now want to read every book J. Budziszewski has written.

Mr. Budziskewski has a rare ability to make clear truths that have been polluted by our current climate of "learning through sound bites". He has a unique answer to the question "why does society seem to fall apart so quickly and with such force." It seems at times not merely to be crumbling, but rather flying apart at the seams, and traditional answers about right and wrong no longer being taught does not adequately explain the force with which violent immorality seems to be overtaking us. His argument is based on an understanding of God's laws (the most fundamental of which are written on our heart), however he does not use scripture as his sole support. He is able to (in much the same way as C.S. Lewis was) appeal to reason, and simply work through difficult questions until he has reached a logical conclusion. Very clear and precise writing from a brilliant thinker.
