The dream, has planted the seed of doubt in Brown's mind, which consequently cuts him off from his fellow man and leaves him alone and depressed. From a ethical viewpoint, Young Goodman Brown is tattered between something that was so real that it left him utterly at a loss as to whether to disbelieve it or not. His entire world has been stunned. Every esteemed person he had ever met his entire life has just been exposed for something other than what he was lead to believe they were. His wife may or may not be implicated in something that he wants no part of. Not only is his faith broken but he no longer trusts the ones around him. He¿½s caught in an emotional and illogical dilemma because he doesn¿½t know who he can turn to or if he can even believe what he has seen.
