Condición del libro: Brand new

Descripción:

This collection brings together a variety of responses to the ancient questions of whether we are -- individually and collectively -- destined for evil. The history of the previous century brought this question into the open more poignantly than perhaps any other before it. Not surprisingly, then, what you will find here is a wide spectrum of opinions concerning the mystery of evil formulated throughout the twentieth century and at the very threshold of th e twenty-first, which has inherited all of its open wounds and nightmarish memories. The pieces included here come from diverse fields: philosophy, religious studies, psychology, history, political science, and art; they also assu me a variety of forms: essays, treatises, stories, correspondence, and interviews. The reader should not expect that the pieces collected here offer proven recipes of how to eliminate evil from the world: rather, they present a co mpelling testimony of human struggles with an aspect of our lives we cannot afford to ignore. Contributors: Sharon Anderson-Gold, Hannah Arendt, Gil Bailie, Daniel Berrigan, Albert Camus, John P. Collins, Thomas Del Pre te, Albert Einstein, Emil Fackenheim, Sigmund Freud, Philip Paul Hallie, Carl Gustav Jung, Michael Lerner, John Montaldo, Susan Neiman, Jeffrey Burton Russell, Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, Tzvetan Todorov, Leo Tolstoy, Michael True, Ni cholas Wolterstorff Predrag Cicovacki is Associate Professor of Philosophy at the College of the Holy Cross, Worcester, Massachusetts, where he served as director of Peace and Conflict Studies and editor-in-chief of Diotima: A Philosophical Review .

Críticas: A rich and diverse exploration of the many dimensions of evil in the modern world, including the moral, religious, social and political. An important contribution to understanding the problems ahead in the 21st century. --Robert L. Holmes, Professor of Philosophy, University of Rochester Destined for Evil? is a profoundly hopeful book that explores the origins and grizzly manifestations of evil among us. It invites readers to counter cycles of evil, injustice, and violence that are often draped in an aura of religious legitimacy while threatening our survival. Destined for Evil? is an indispensable resource for people of faith willing to search the depths of divine mystery looking for clues to our human capacity for both evil and compassion. --Jack Nelson-Pallmeyer is Assistant Professor of Justice and Peace Studies at the University of St. Thomas and the author of Jesus against Christianity and Saving Christianity from Empire.
