Dear Kristina,

Thank you for calling to my attention to this question.

I do not know exactly what it is common sense... My original language matrix is Portuguese… in Portuguese we have the expression (senso comum) it is to my perception (senso comum). However (senso comum) does not have a “positive” power as (bom senso) that could be translated as “good sense”. So maybe in the Portuguese language we should think as (bom senso) when we refer to “common sense”… since maybe in English does not exist(?) “good sense”.

So, concluding, “good sense” (bom senso) it is understood as healthy judgment. Regarding “common sense” (senso comum) it is understood as what is commonly knew if it is not true… for example the expression “the sun rises in east and set in the west” could be expression of (senso comum) but hardly would be a expression of (bom senso) since we know that what is moving is the earth and not the sun

Have a great day!
