Why Modern Intellectuals Deny the Concept of Evil

Edwin A. Locke

Presented at: TJS 1987

Date: Aug 02, 1987

This lecture will examine the premises held by contemporary psychologists and other intellectuals that lead them to deny the existence of evil, such as the insistence that all people are good, are open to reason, and are morally equal. Dr. Locke will discuss such concrete symptoms of the denial of evil as the fact that the Holocaust is not discussed in psychology texts, the failure of intellectuals to condemn Soviet concentration camps, and the belief that anyone who believes the U.S. should arm itself is mentally ill.
