Overview

The Evil in Us by Uwe Petersen

What is the origin of the distinction between good and bad? In view of the manifold aspects in which evil appears, criteria are developed to define it and they are applied to manifestations of evil - especially in recent history such as Nazi-Germany and the apartheid regime of South-Africa. This reveals the relativity of all views, for who is called a bad person but as a rule does not feel so, thus considers himself on the contrary as good person.
