Synopsis: Conscience is frequently cited and yet its mechanisms are not understood. Conscience is most familiar as a voice protesting against actions which compromise personal integrity. Conscience is also cited in directing actions such as seeking political office and sending soldiers to war. In order to explain the scope of its influence, this text develops a view of cognition in which conscience is foundational. The text melds thousands of years of philosophical tradition into the cutting edge of neurological research. The focus is a rethinking of the most philosophical of all questions: what is the meaning of life? The result is the ACTWith model of conscience. The model provides a system for the conceptualization of moral problems. It provides a psychology which does not treat morality merely as an add-on to a primarily rational animal. It does so by uncovering the role of conscience in motivating an individual to do the right thing in every situation. The model is tested against the most compelling moral problems ever to face humanity: what can I do about impending environmental collapse and injustices of empire? Can conscience save the world? This work shows that it can.
