Another essay on reconciliation of good and evil is just as lucid and worth reading. Hatcher shows that it is difficult (impossible?) to formulate a logical definition of good and evil wherein evil is thought of as an absolute force. On the other hand set theoretic models whereby good is an absolute and evil a merely relative "absence of goodness" can, with the aid of modern logic and set theory, be given a consistent logical framework.
Hatcher's other essays on sociological aspects of religion and science are also illuminating, and although not as groovy as the set theoretic analyses I mentioned above, are nevertheles probably more important essays, and should be read by any academics who are interested in the role science and philosophy have in bringing about a more peaceful world, and indeed should be read by anyone with an interest in both sciecne and world peace. Given the state of the world that we find in the early 21st century, Hathcer's essays offer an invaluable perspective on a possible way forward in human intellectual evolution. It is truly remarkable that Hatcher is rarely quoted by other philosophers and academics who write about the interface between science and religion.
