Out of Eden:
Adam and Eve and the Problem of Evil
Paul W. Kahn

Book Description | Table of Contents
Chapter 1 [HTML] or [PDF format]

ENDORSEMENTS:

"Paul W. Kahn's book is one of the deepest meditations on evil that I have read. It is insightful, rich, and original. Its main merit is the particular existential line of inquiry that it offers--uncovering the root of evil in the human condition itself. It therefore avoids the sort of investigation that is so common concerning evil, which concentrates on the social and political conditions that trigger evil. Kahn weaves this existential inquiry through an interpretation of the Genesis myth of the fall, postulating the source of evil in the human condition of knowledge, shame, and death. It is one of the most compelling modern readings of Genesis that I have encountered."--Moshe Halbertal, Hebrew University, Jerusalem

"Out of Eden is an extraordinary, deeply original reflection on the nature of evil."--David Luban, Georgetown University
