Wickedness : A Philosophical Essay, Paperback

Wickedness : A Philosophical Essay Paperback

Part of the Routledge Classics series



To look into the darkness of the human soul is a frightening venture.

Here Mary Midgley does so, with her customary brilliance and clarity.

Midgley's analysis proves that the capacity for real wickedness is an inevitable part of human nature.

This is not however a blanket acceptance of evil. Out of this dark journey she returns with an offering to us: an understanding of human nature that enhances our very humanity.
