Understanding Evil

Keith Doubt

This chapter discusses the concept of evil as applied to Bosnia. It argues that when we try to grasp the recent history of Bosnia, it is impossible not to raise the subject of evil. In turn, when we seek to comprehend what evil is, it is parochial not to turn our attention to Bosnia. In the face of unimaginable suffering, people from Bosnia came to understand the paradoxes of evil. Evil is the attempt to kill the social, to murder action itself. While evil simulates action, it ultimately belies itself as action.

Keywords:   Bosnia, evil, war crimes, paradoxes of evil, action
