Author Ilham Dilman explains why a "thoughtful psychology," encompassing the varied modes of being experienced by humans, is the best tool for investigating the nature of good and evil. To illustrate, he employs Raskolnikov, Dostoyevsky's axe-murdering protagonist in Crime and Punishment, following his alienation from goodness, his return to it, and finally, his ethical rebirth.
