Raimond Gaita affirms absolute goodness as the only thing with the power to keep fully amongst us the worst kind of evildoer. At issue in this goodness is a wonder that he ties to joy.

An aspect of his writings which resists the emphasis on a joyous wonder may assist our thinking about the relation to the evildoer.
