The idea of moral evil has always held a special place in philosophical and theological systems of thought because the existence of evil has implications for the dignity with which and the limits within which human beings act. Andrew Michael Flescher proposes four interpretations of evil, drawing on philosophical and theological sources, and uses them to trace through history models of the moral traditions that are to be associated with them. Drawing connections between Augustine and Aristotle, Flescher extends these four models into a fifth, which emphasizes forming altruistic habits that can lead us to better moral choices throughout the course of our lives.
