HONS 361 - The Problem of Evil

3 credits Crosslisted With: PHIL 361  
If God is all powerful, all knowing, and supremely good, then why is there so much evil in the world? In philosophy of religion this problem is known as “the problem of evil”. In the first half of this course we will examine philosophical arguments against belief in God based on evil (and responses to them). The second half of the course fills out our conception of evil with units that could include evil in literature, the psychology of evil, and evil in film. Ultimately this course seeks to help students think seriously about the nature of evil and what this means for how we respond to it.
