Walter C. Clemens
- University Press of Kentucky
In Chapter Eight, Clemens asks whether or not we should negotiate with individuals and groups we regard as evil and if evil is real. He then goes on to examine three ways to view humanity: that people are either good or evil, that all humans are flawed, or that humanity ranges up and down a bell curve from saintly to profoundly evil. Clemens assesses evil and contemplates the consequences of “bargaining with the devil.” Clemens ends the chapter by discusses what it takes to make peace in this world.
