The articles examines Joseph Butler's idea that virtue consists in following one's nature and considers whether Butler is open to objections raised for ideas of this sort by John Stuart Mill in his essay 'Nature'. The interpretation offered sheds light on Butler's doctrine of the supremacy of conscience. The treatment of this doctrine is different from that presented by Nicholas Sturgeon.
