Event Description : LECTURE & DISCUSSION "On Evil - A philosophical colloquium" With Robert Bernasconi, Divya Dwivedi and Shaj Mohan

It is possible for the term ‘evil’ to appear in all the affairs of men—war crimes, animal testing in labs, economic disasters, scientists making super weapons, and the silence about crimes in our vicinity. In attempting to give meaning to this term evil philosophy has a unique relation to it, even an intimacy.
Philosophers define evil variously, by producing linkages with other concepts such as knowledge, will, bad heart, banality, sorrow, and silence. Philosophers such as Martin Heidegger, and philosophy itself, have been implicated in the evil that men do. What is the meaning of evil in our own time? To which other concepts are evil interlinked? What is the relation between technology and evil? How did we inherit the present weight of meaning that evil has come to have? These are the questions through
which this conference will proceed.
