PHI 235 EVIL
Even in the face of the horrors of past century, moral philosophers have hesitated to speak of "good and evil," preferring instead the more pallid vocabulary of "right and wrong." We shall ask whether we ought to speak of "evil," and if so, when and why. We shall explore the concept of evil historically as well as analytically, paying special attention to Hannah Arendt's work.
Open to sophomores, juniors, and seniors who have taken one course in philosophy. Priority given to philosophy majors.
Enrollment limited to 28 students.
