The Good and the Good Conscience.  You hold that all good things have at all times had a good conscience?  Science, which is certainly a very good thing, has come into the world without such a conscience and quite free from all pathos, rather clandestinely, by roundabout ways, walking with shrouded or masked face like a sinner, and always with the feeling at least of being a smuggler.  Good conscience has bad conscience for its stepping stone, not for its opposite.  For all that is good has at one time been new and consequently strange, against morals, immoral, and has gnawed like a worm at the heart of the fortunate discoverer.
