Abstract

The paper deals with that extreme form of evil represented by torture, trying to highlight the different faces of the possible manifestations of the Other: the Other as persecutor, the Other Self inside every human being, and the social Other. All these manifestations will be examined within a wider definition of torture as a system with its own purpose, its roles and peculiar dynamics of operation.   Keywords: Moral Evil; Violence; Torture; Dignity; Sartre.
