The problem of natural evil II: Hybrid replies

Philosophy Compass 4 (3):560-574 (2009)
Abstract
I consider two views that combine different elements of general theistic replies to natural evil, those of Peter van Inwagen and William Hasker. I end with a Hasker-style defense – one that, unlike Hasker's, denies the existence of pointless natural evils – and some brief observations on the direction of future debate.
