The 18th century politician and philosopher Edmund Burke was once moved to comment:

“Guilt was never a rational thing; it distorts all the faculties of the human mind, it perverts them, it leaves a man no longer in the free use of his reason, it puts him into confusion.”

Burke was touching upon a question that has animated theologians and philosophers for centuries. Is the feeling of guilt a vital part of our moral lives or can it do more harm than good? And how does guilt relate to reason and the workings of the mind? The answers seem to cut deeply into our understanding of what it is to be human.
