Dr. Stephen Tyman joins Jeremy for a conversation about the problem of evil and its relationship to the Confederation’s concept of polarized seeking. Steve gives an introduction to how evil has been historically regarded, ranging from a notion of evil as a mere absence of good to the idea of evil as a positive value diametrically opposed to good. They analyze the character and recognizable traits of service-to-self other selves in psychological, spiritual, political, and philosophical aspects, including how service-to-others seekers might relate to those of the opposite polarity.
