Dimensions of Evil

Dimensions of Evil

$39.99

Paperback
"Despite millennia of reflection, no consensus has developed on the character and dynamics of evil. This survey volume composes a framework for analysis of the many dimensions and aspects of the question of evil. Cooper interrogates the most salient philosophers, theologians, psychologists, and social scientists of the last one hundred years on the question." "Cooper's work captures insights from several quarters and overcomes the narrow ways in which evil is understood in the different disciplines. And his clear distinction of evil in natural, personal, and social realms allows readers to sort through the many layers and mechanisms of evil as well as the exciting perspectives on evil that illumine our world today."--BOOK JACKET.

- Publisher From natural catastrophes to horrific human violence to death-dealing social systems, evil calls out ever more dramatically for explanation and understanding. Yet despite millennia of reflection, no consensus has developed on the character and dynamics of evil. This masterful survey volume composes a framework that separates out for analysis the many dimensions and aspects of the question of evil and then interrogates the best philosophers, theologians, psychologists, and social scientists of the last one hundred years on the question. Cooper's interdisciplinary focus captures insights from theology, philosophy, and psychology and overcomes the ghettoization of the question. His clear distinction of evil in natural, personal, and social realms allows readers to sort through the many layers and mechanisms of evil and the helpful perspectives that illuminate our world today.
