In "The Nature of Evil, "Daryl Koehn takes us on a sweeping tour of different interpretations of evil. In this timely and serious discussion she argues that evil is not intentional malice, but rather violence that stems from a false sense of self. Violence is not true evil but a symptom of the underlying evil of our failure to really know who we are. Koehn examines situations in which good intentions can have horrific results. She explores such works as "The Talented Mr. Ripley," Dante's" Inferno," and "The Turn of the Screw" to illustrate the origins of evil and suffering. "The Nature of Evil" offers an insightful and engaging exploration at a time when we are all struggling to understand the roots of violence and suffering.Koehn, Daryl is the author of 'Nature of Evil', published 2007 under ISBN 9780230602298 and ISBN 0230602290.
