Titolo   La coscienza come sentimento interiore in J.-J. Rousseau
Pagine   283-289

The essay is focused on the semantic range of the term conscience put to use by Rousseau. From its connection with reason through its function as inner principle “of justice and virtue” up to its universality, insofar a it is referred to the soul’s well-being, the notion of conscience displays first of all the meaning of an interior light and assent. Within the frame of such a notion according to Rousseau finally virtue is linked up to religion.
