The Anthropology of Evil  

This course is an inquiry into how to define evil, followed by a study of its symptomatology, etiology, and epidemiology. Evil will be examined from sociological, psychological, biological, and theological perspectives. Both personal evil and evil done by groups, tribes, and nations will be considered. We will attempt to account for the evil of both psychopaths and ordinary, law-abiding citizens. Topics will include narcissism, careerism, good and bad values, and our penchant for thinking in abstractions. Finally, we will ask if evil can be prevented.
