Evil revisited - responses to Hamilton

Philosophical Explorations 2 (2):139 – 142 (1999)
In "The Nature of Evil"2 I offer an analysis of evil action, in a sense distinct from merely very wrong action, in which I claim that the evil act is one in which the agent silences (i.e. is deaf to) overwhelming considerations against performing the act. Christopher <span class='Hi'>Hamilton</span>'s interesting commentary raises five objections against my account of evil in terms of silenced reasons (the SR account, for brevity.) I shall argue that all five objections can be met.
