from “Illness as Metaphor”, 1977, p. 85
“But how to be morally severe in the late twentieth century? How, when there is so much to be severe about; when we have a sense of evil but no longer the religious or philosophical language to talk about evil. Trying to comprehend ‘radical’ or ‘absolute’ evil, we search for adequate metaphors.”
See again, the use of “crazy” metaphors to describe evil people and evil acts.
