Book Description Harpercollins, 1996. Book Condition: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: Evil is a puzzling and disturbing topic, but in Dark Nature, Watson takes evil out of the realm of monsters, aliens, devils and demons and puts it squarely where it belongs, in nature and in our everyday lives. Going beyond the usual moral, religious and philosophical explanations of human behavior, this book shows evil as a biological reality and how, as such, it should be dealt with.
