This chapter begins with a brief discussion of Socrates's refusal for theorize evil. It then ponders the questions: If we could report to Socrates the violence inflicted upon people and the communities of Bosnia–Herzegovina, would Socrates say that Ratko Mladic and Radovan Karadzic—the individuals responsible or planning, initiating, leading, and sustaining these crimes—did not “do what they willed?” Would Socrates say that Mladic and Karadzic had “the least power” in the cities of Bosnia–Herzegovina during the war?

Keywords:   Socrates, evil, Bosnia, war crimes, Ratko Mladic, Radovan Karadzic
