Evil

Mark Covey

People do horrible, reprehensible acts and psychologists have attempted to understand why. This course will explore the nature of evil from a variety of perspectives and then attempt to understand how individuals come to commit "evil" - those times in which otherwise average people behave in personally and socially destructive ways. Our critical examination of evil will conclude with a comparative exploration of personal and societal responses to the question of "evil." WC
