This timely book by philosopher Peter Dews explores the idea of evil, one of the most problematic terms in the contemporary moral vocabulary. - Surveys the intellectual debate on the nature of evil over the past two hundred years - Engages with a broad range of discourses and thinkers, from Kant and the German Idealists, via Schopenhauer and Nietzsche, to Levinas and Adorno - Suggests that the concept of moral evil touches on a neuralgic point in western culture - Argues that, despite the widespread abuse and political manipulation of the term #evil#, we cannot do without it Concludes that if we use the concept of evil, we must acknowledge its religious dimension.
