Abstract

The Problem of Evil and Its Solution


It is argued that the, prima facie, jointly inconsistent statements, God made the world, God is a perfect being, a perfect being would not create a world containing evil and the world contains evil, can be rendered consistent by exploiting a Leibnizian perspective on possible worlds. On the Leibnizian account God does not have wordly existence, and possible world actualism is rejected. Further, it is briefly argued that orthodox possible world actualism is itself incompatible with God’s perfection.Working paper
