Response to Nagasawa

Andrew Gleeson

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


Professor Nagasawa introduces existential concepts to the discussions of the problem of evil, but does not make fruitful use of them. Janna Thompson says (in effect) that resentment at some casual circumstance of our life's origin need not conflict with gratitude for being alive, since that resentment may express only a wish that we had come to be in some other, innocent, way, and not a wish that we did not exist at all.
