Ratzinger's reflections show that contemporary debates over the nature of conscience have deep historical and philosophical roots. He says that a person is bound to act in accord with his conscience, but he makes it clear that there must be reliable, proven sources for the judgment of conscience in moral issues, other than the subjective reflections of each individual.
The always unique and profound insights that the new Pope Benedict XVI brings to perennial problems reminds the reader of his strong warning before the recent Papal conclave of the great dangers today of the "dictatorship of relativism."

After reading this book 'On Conscience,' I have come to the belief that a person is solely responsible for their actions. When a person is able to understand and to learn about who they are they will be more than likely to understand why they do things. Ratzinger is able to express gratitude and emotion in this writing. He is able to create a great piece of work here.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
