Instructor: Susan Wolf. This course meets W 3:35 – 6:05 p.m. via remote synchronous (RS) instruction.

What is evil?  Who – if anyone – is responsible for it?  Are there evil people?  If so, how different are evil people from the rest of us?  How should we respond to them?   The seminar will explore the nature of evil, engaging with both real and fictional examples, using films, stories, and readings in philosophy, psychology, and more.
