ABSTRACT
The problem of evil has been one of the problematic issues of philosophy of religion. The conception of an omniscient, omnipotent and absolutely good God has been rejected for the reason that there are evils on the world. According to this, since the beginning of the history of thought, the philosophers believing in God have put forward some arguments against the thinkers trying to establish atheism depending on the evils on the world. In this study, the problem of evil will be investigated in general, and the thoughts of Seneca, a Swan philosopher who put forward thoughts on the problem of evil will be explained.
