'This book explores the potential for evil in men and traces its various manifestations in cultural texts, social systems, and everyday life. Ross Honeywill provides an excellent analysis of theoretical concepts and social processes that have been crucial to the development of Western culture. His discussion of contemporary culture is both revealing and convincing, and fully supports the concluding claim that it is in the culture of knowledge that the potential for men to 'exercise true, fully agentic morality' should be located.' - Katarzyna Wi?ckowska, Nicolaus Copernicus University, Poland
