Justice Clashes

When I read the phrase “justice clashes not only with his feelings but with the very possibility of life” in Russian “а справедливость противоречило больше чем чувству, а всей возможности его жизни” I thought this was all about his inner life. “противоречило” would usually be translated as “contradicted”. So… what he knew to be the fair and rational answer went against what he felt, and against his will to go on living. Our reason, our emotions and our basic will make up different parts of the personality, which are not necessarily in agreement.
