I will show that the argument to this conclusion rests on two premises: (a) to feel guilty typically involves the judgement that one deserves punishment; and (b) those who feel guilty after wrongdoing are more virtuous (or less vicious) than those who do not. I shall argue that (a) is false on empirical grounds; and that there are no particularly good reasons to believe (b).
