Abstract: This essay examines the possibility of arguing transcendentally for anti-theodicism, i.e., the view that theodicies seeking to justify or excuse God's allowing the world to contain evil and suffering ought to be rejected. In particular, it will be suggested that a certain kind of moral criticism of theodicies can be given a transcendental formulation. The occasionally shifting roles of the transcendental, the empirical, and the transcendent will thereby also be discussed. Finally, the question of truth-a general issue in transcendental argumentation-will be briefly explored from a pragmatist perspective in relation to the possibility of moral testimony and the acknowledgment of others' suffering.
