Solving the Problem of Evil

In this video we discuss William Rowe's version of the evidential problem of evil, from "The Problem of Evil and Some Varieties of Atheism," American Philosophical Quarterly 16 (1979). We examine the ways that we might present theodicies for the multitudinous instances of suffering we observe in the world, dividing them into Moral and Natural, and then providing the answers of the Free Will Defense and the Theodicy from the Consistency of the World, respectively.
