The understanding of evil is the focus of Afshin Hafizi’s lecture for the Matter of Opinion symposium. Hafizi will examine how philosophers from Martin Heidegger to Alain Badiou scrutinized the problem of evil and its relationship to truth. He will also explore how technology, which stems from the Greek word “techne,” can be understood in a similar fashion.

“Techne and the Problem of Evil” is part of the “A Matter of Opinion” symposium. The presentation and symposium are free and open to the public.
