USING LITERATURE ABOUT EVIL TO LEAD STUDENTS TOWARDS THE GOOD
Evil is a complex entity, a category of reasoning that is both interesting and challenging to researchers. Over the past half century, there have been many studies on the roots of evil and solutions to prevent and limit evil. However, the highlighted measures such as punishment, detention and re-education are just efforts to approach the consequences of the problem. In fact, in many countries today, the situation of school violence is still complicated and tends to increase. It is necessary to promote the search for prevention and early intervention solutions to help students be immune to evil. My article is an attempt to approach that aim. The article examines the meanings of the literature on evil and proposes some principles and measures to use it as an attractive and insightful educational tool to help prevent students' instincts from evil. The primary research questions include: Should we pay attention to teach students about the evil mentioned in the literary text? If yes, what do we teach and how much? Is writing about evil good or bad for educating students away from evil? How does the obsession with evil in literature guide and inspire students to go toward the good?
