A Theory of Evil What distinguishes evils from ordinary wrongs Is hatred a necessarily evil Are some evils unforgivable Are there evils we should tolerate What can make evils hard to recognize Are evils inevitable How can we best respond to and live with evils Claudia Card offers a secular theory of evil that responds to these questions and more. Evils, according to her theory, have two fundamental components. One component is reasonably foreseeable intolerable harm -- harm that makes a life indecent and impossible or that makes a death indecent. The other component is culpable wrongdoing. Atrocities, such as genocides, slavery, war rape, torture, and severe child abuse, are Card&apos s paradigms because in them these key elements are writ large. Atrocities deserve more attention than secular philosophers have so far paid them. They are distinguished from ordinary wrongs not by the psychological states of evildoers but by the seriousness of the harm that is done. Evildoers need not be sadistic:they may simply be negligent or unscrupulous in pursuing their goals. Card&apos s theory represents a compromise between classic utilitarian and stoic alternatives (including Kant&apos s theory of radical evil). Utilitarians tend to reduce evils to their harms Stoics tend to reduce evils to the wickedness of perpetrators: Card accepts neither reduction. She also responds to Nietzsche&apos s challenges about the worth of the concept of evil, and she uses her theory to argue that evils are more important than merely unjust inequalities. She applies the theory in explorations of war rape and violence against intimates. She also takes up what Primo Levi called " the gray zone" , where victims become complicit in perpetrating on others evils that threaten to engulf themselves. While most past accounts of evil have focused on perpetrators, Card begins instead from the position of the victims, but then considers more generally how to respond to -- and live with -- evils, as victims, as perpetrators, and as those who have become both.

A Theory of Evil In this groundbreaking book, noted philosopher and feminist Claudia Card presents a workable theory of evil, examining in particular human atrocities - acts of cruelty committed by human beings on others. Unlike natural disasters or morally ambiguous acts, Card describes atrocities as the wrongful infliction of harm -- in the form of rape, genocide, slavery, torture, and child abuse, for example - upon innocent and undeserving human beings. Focusing on the victims&apos points of view, she uses atrocities to examine the nature of evil because they are the most telling representation of the notion of deliberate wrongdoing resulting in terrible harm. As a crucial contribution to the history of moral philosophy, this study is unprecedented and will be widely read by ethicists, moral theorists, philosophers of religion, and readers interested in human behavior.
