The History of Men with Scruples

It’s good to expand our horizons and learn random facts.

Scruple. A feeling of doubt or uneasiness, a pricking of conscience.

This is derived from the Latin “scrupulous,” meaning a small stone or pebble. When Roman soldiers were on their long marches, sometimes small pebbles would become lodged inside their sandals, causing discomfort or unease. Our word “scruple” comes from this same awareness of something bothersome.

(Information provided by “The Complete Footwear Dictionary: Second Edition” by Dr. William A. Rossi, 2000.)

  1. I feel like I've heard people say "unscrupulous" in the context for "scrupulous," i.e., "stop this unscrupulous behavior."

  2. Yes, and "unscrupulous" still works in that context because it mean that that person is unrestrained by morals or ethics.

    And then someone with scrupulous behavior would be high on morals and ethics, but also very regretful to the point of being plagued by it.

    So, in a sense, both forms of the word have negative connotations.

  3. Maybe because it is made up of so many other languages. There's latin, spanish, french, etc. That seems to be the craziest part.
