Understanding Evil
(Understanding Evil)

Evil is a topic the most of us feel we understand to some degree. However, most of us do not realize that there are many understandings of what is evil and they have been explained by some of the greatest minds of recorded human history. This course presents those understandings. What is important is that each understanding comes with logical implications that color our fundamental beliefs in very significant ways--especially beliefs that relate to the subject of religion. 

For example, we can think of evil as part of a divine cosmic struggle of good versus evil or we can think of evil as "missing the mark" or a reflection of an unripe maturity. The former is almost something beyond our control and the later is something that education and training can retify.
