Abstract
The concept of evil has been a subject of debate for moral, political, and legal philosophers. Among these, the names of Friedrich Nietzsche and Alain Badiou are particularly worthy of note. Both have considered the problem of evil in path-breaking ways. Nietzsche controversial figure of the nineteenth century German philosophy has often been misunderstood as an immoral, blasphemous and sacrilegious philosopher. His ideas throw a frightening and disturbing challenge to modern consciousness. His writing is an attack on morality, religion, and science. Badiou is considered a post-Althusserian thinker who attempts to reclaim Hegelian heritage. His writing is a combination of different fields and commitments: the mathematical theory of sets and categories, modernist poetry and art, radical politics, Lacanian psychoanalysis, Contemporary Theatre, and the history of philosophy from Plato to Lyotard. The aim of this paper is to understand the way these two philosophers approach the question of evil. The paper studies two works of philosophy: Friedrich Nietzsche’s Anti-Christ and Alain Badiou’s Ethics: An Essay on the Understanding of Evil.
