Description of Course:

The Problem of Evil

Why do bad things happen?

Using Classic, Modern, and Postmodern texts, this class will examine this essential philosphical conundrum. We will try to synthesize the various ways in which people have been adressing this issue for hundreds of years, including discussions of the role of faith and belief systems, existentialism, the arts and culture, Postmodernism, and other expressions.
