Historical Perspectives on Freedom and Evil
Talks at this conferenceAdd a talk
Despite the absence of uniform, orthodox ways of defining the concepts of freedom and evil, it is often thought that they interact in important ways. Attempting to clarify the nature of this interaction often gives rise to complicated philosophical systems because the problem extends across at least three philosophical axes simultaneously: metaphysical, epistemological, and ethical. This conference will address some of these issues from an explicitly historical perspective, especially that of the early-modern and modern periods.
