This course is designed to improve your academic and language skills, with emphasis placed on thesis-driven writing. To achieve this you will critically interact with, discuss and write about a wide range of texts (e.g. theological, scientific, psychological, literary, etc.) thematically linked to evil. Furthermore, throughout the course you will learn to question both personal and societal assumptions about evil, it causes and effects. For example, what is evil? Why do we suffer from evil? How do we explain evil? Who is evil? Conclusions to such questions will develop depending on class-based discussions of ideas/concepts generated through shared interpretations of course texts.
