"What is the origin of evil? Where does what we term evil come from? According to Paul Ricoeur, to think through evil is to think through fallibility: because human freedom is summed up as existence prior to evil. Deriving from a lecture given in Lausanne in 1985, this small text adds to the immense oeuvre of this philosopher who is not regarded as a theologian but whose thinking readily shares some kinship with certain characteristics of Protestantism."--BOOK JACKET.
-Publisher



Where does evil come from? How is it that we do evil? This book falls into three parts. The fi rst part deals with the magnitude and complexity of the problem of evil from a phenomenological perspective. The second part investigates the levels of speculation on the origin and nature of evil. The third discusses thinking, acting and feeling in connection with evil. The discussion runs in the classic intellectual tradition from Augustine, through Hegel, Leibnitz, Kant, and Nietzsche. But the voice is always that of Paul Ricoeur himself, though he also refers to modern writers like Harold Kushner(When Bad Things Happen to Good People)and John K. Roth (Encountering Evil). Ricoeur considers here man's vulnerability to evil with depth and matchless sensitivity.
