This book presents a thoughtful, sensitive, and wide-ranging consideration of the challenging problem of 'evil' and how we might be delivered from it. Evil is a problem that will not go away. For some it is an inescapable fact of the human condition. For others 'evil' is a term that should only be used to name the most horrible of crimes. Still others think that the worst problem lies with the abuse of the term: using it to vilify a misunderstood enemy. No matter how we approach it, 'evil' is a concept that continues to call out for critical reflection. This volume collects the results of a two-year deliberation within the Boston University Institute for Philosophy of Religion lecture series, bringing together scholars of religion, literature, and philosophy. Its essays provide a thoughtful, sensitive, and wide-ranging consideration of this challenging problem--and of ways that we might be delivered from it. Contributions from leading scholars include: Richard Bernstein, Francis X. Clooney, Georges Dreyfus, Rachel Fell McDermott, David Frankfurter, Charles Hallisey, Peter Hawkins, Tomoko Iwasawa, Manfred Kuehn, Mark Larrimore, Alan Olson, Eric Ormsby, Kimberley Patton and Brook Ziporyn.
