ABSTRACT
A person's belief in the moral character of his own act is surely not the only court before which that act may be judged. While a reflective conscience is a necessary court, and a very important one, it is not a sufficient one. The audience would want to know whether the individual was acting conscientiously, and whether this way of acting might have moral and/ or political motivation. The following paper utilizes Cohen' s model for identification of the motivation for conscientious disobedience and develops a model of a personally motivated refusal as well.
