Description
"Itís normal to be evil," writes Lars Svendsen, who suggests that we've lost the vocabulary to talk about it. Due to the overuse of the word "evil" in movies, political speeches, and news reports, the concept is increasingly seen as either flagrant rhetoric or else an outdated, medieval notion. Svendsen examines the issue from religious, scientific, and philosophical angles, portraying evil as an ordinary aspect of contemporary life, with implications that are moral, practical, and above all, political.

"Svendsen has a way with words, and, unlike many writers of philosophy books, is also blessed with a sly wit and a thorough knowledge of popular culture."óGlasgow Herald
