Arguing that the prevalence of evil presents a fundamental problem for our secular sensibility, John Kekes develops a conception of character-morality as a response. He shows that the main sources of evil are habitual, unchosen actions produced by our character defects and that we can increase our control over the evil we cause by cultivating a reflective temper.

Review:

"An engaging blend of cultural insight, careful reasoning, and reflective wisdom. . . . John Kekes offers a compelling vision of the human condition and presents a set of logical conclusions about how we should live our lives in light of this vision."--Anthony E. Hartle, Society

"Fascinating, existentially relevant, even wise. [Facing Evil] is among the best works of contemporary moral philosophy in this or any year in recent memory."--Craig K. Ihara, San Francisco Review of Books

"[A] thoughtful, wide-ranging book . . . Every reader will find . . . numerous insights and interesting arguments."--Stephen Nathanson, Philosophy and Literature
