Philosophy and Rhetoric 1 (2):91 - 102 (1968)

Abstract
I argue that the problem of evil, As a problem with theological significance, Cannot be specified in terms simply of truth and logic. For a problem specified in this way can be seen to be either trivial or necessarily insoluble before any of the substantive issues are decided. I then argue that it should be construed as a special sort of rhetorical problem, One posed by beliefs about the compatibility of other beliefs. On the basis of the logic and truth values involved I distinguish two sub-Classes of such problems, And discuss appropriate methods of resolving them
