LITERATURE AND EVIL : Dostoyevsky's Poetic Thinking On Evil
AbstractPhilosophical and theological reflections claim evil as the
binary opposite of the good. This way of thinking cannot
understand the evil of terror. To understand the nature of evil
we need a poetic way of thinking. A poetic way of thinking goes
beyond the binary of good and evil. Dostoyevsky locates evil
within us contingent and finite human beings. Only by
acknowledging this we can gain freedom to act and create.
