Are we INHERENTLY Inclined to do EVIL? Dostoevsky

Dostoevsky and Us
Are we INHERENTLY Inclined to do EVIL? Dostoevsky
Show Notes

One key question in Dostoevsky's philosophy is the idea of whether humans are naturally inclined to do evil. Are humans good? Are humans evil? Is there even a correct answer to this question. 
In this video extract, I try to answer this question and view Dostoevsky's philosophy from the perspective of Heideggarian thrownness, in other words, to say that it actually is a bit of both, that humans are simultaneously good and evil is something which has to be synthesised.
