PAPAGIANNIS LAMPROS I.

Contents
Prologue
Introduction

Evil has fascinated man since the beginning of time and has been present throughout the history of mankind under numerous forms in mythology and religion. But how did it penetrate the world? Or has it been always there, as part of the human nature, an antidote to the boredom of endless benevolence or the alter ego of goodness? What would man be, if Eva hadn’t taken that bite? Should we consider philosophy as the outburst of man’s accumulated need to comprehend the cosmos and to stand against the ontological problem of existence? This monograph attempts to place man in the very centre of the philosophical quest through the myths that depict the eternal battle between good and evil, which inevitably takes the Heraclitean form of ’’I sought myself’’ in order to search for the ontological identity of evil.
