    which one tends to win out? the emotional or the logical self in a struggle? and what if they should both agree?

    isn't that part of the conflict with belief systems and how they could appeal to all and not some vs another?

    both the subjective and objective could be realized?

    "Happiness is the coincidence of desire and duty." - Kant (from memory, couldn't find the quote)

    Usually there is no struggle between logic and emotion. Emotion is the default state and most of our actions are emotionally. Logic has to be wilfully applied. When there is conflict between logic and emotion, logic has only done half of its work. The goal should be to convince ourselves to feel as right what our mind has deduced as righteous.
