This is the first anthology to present the full range of the many forms evil. Amelie Rorty has assembled a collection of readings that include not only the most common forms of evil, such as vice, sin, cruelty and crime, but also some which are less well known, such disobedience and willfulness. The readings are drawn from a rich array of historical, philosophical, theological, literary, dramatic, psychological and legal perspectives. Amelie Rorty's introductions to the readings sets each one in context and makes the anthology essential reading for anyone interested in the philosophy of evil.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"The Many Faces of evil seems meant to whet our appetite for a furthur and deeper study of evil by reminding us of the ubiquity and variety of views about the nature of evil, its sources, and the proper remedies for it.."
-Elizabeth V. Spelman, may 2004
