InEvil After Postmodernism,six distinguished scholars address our understanding of evil in the light of postmodern thought, asking what might be lost in losing the concept of evil and what dangers might be incurred by continuing to use it. The essays in this volume are organized around three themes: the histories, narratives, and ethics of evil. In each section, the first essay illustrates theoretical difficulties thinking about evil faces in the postmodern age, while the second offers a constructive response to that difficulty. Contributors include Berel Lang, Larry D. Bouchard, Roger Shattuck, David B. Morris, Thomas Cushman, and Richard Kearney.
