Evil After Postmodernism brings together a collection of six essays by a group of distinguished scholars which address our understanding of evil in the light of postmodern thought. The essays ask what might be lost in losing the concept of evil and what dangers might be incurred by continuing to use it. The essays are organized around three themes - Histories of Evil, Narratives of Evil and Ethics of Evil. In each section the first essay illustrates certain theoretical difficulties faced by thinking about evil in the postmodern age, while the second offers a constructive response to that difficulty. *Evil Inside and Outside History: The Post-Holocaust vs the Post-Modern *On Contingency and Culpability: Is the Post-Modern Post-Tragic? *Narrating Evil: Great Faults and Splendidly Wicked People *The Plot of Suffering: AIDS and Evil *The Reflexivity of Evil: Modernity and Transgression in War in Bosnia *Encountering Others and Aliens: Between Good and Evil Jennifer Geddes' introduction and conclusion, and a preface by James Hunter, director of the University of Virginia's Institute for Advance Studies in Culture, complete this stimulating and lucid investigation into the meaning of evil following the enormous cultural and social changes of the modern age.
