Provoked by Albert Camus’ The Stranger, this paper explores the connection between evil and an indifference towards human relationships. Relying heavily on Hannah Arendt and Simone de Beauvoir, I offer an understanding of the self as relational and interconnected. Once the human beings are understood as relational, I will then explore how an indifference towards human relationships leads to a higher propensity for evil.
