      The Rhetoric of the Conscience in Donne, Herbert, and Vaughan Ceri Sullivan. The first book for over a decade to deal with the issue of conscience in metaphysical poetry; Makes connections between three disciplines (theology, rhetoric, aesthetics) mostly considered in isolation.

      Conscience is a cognitive process that elicits emotion and rational associations based on an individual's moral philosophy or value system. Conscience stands in contrast to elicited emotion or thought due to associations based on immediate sensory perceptions and reflexive responses, as in sympathetic central nervous system responses. In common terms, conscience is often described as leading.   In Western thought, it has been persistently assumed that in moral and political matters, people should rely on the inner voice of conscience rather than on external authorities, laws, and regulations. This volume investigates this concept, examining the development of the Western politics of conscience, from Socrates to the present, and the formation of the Western ethico-political subject.
