This bookaexamines what makes someone an evil person and how
evil people are different from merely bad people. Rather than
focusing on the problem of evil that occupies philosophers of
religion, Barry looks instead to moral psychologyOCothe
intersection of ethics and psychology. He provides both a
philosophical account of what evil people are like and considers
the implications of that account for social, legal, and criminal
institutions. He also engages in traditional philosophical
reasoning strongly informed by psychological research, especially
abnormal and social psychology.
In response to the popularity of phrases like the axis of evil
and the ease with which politicians and others describe their
opponents as evil, Barry sets out to make clear just what it is to
be an evil person."
