Sample text

Minas and Scarre (among others) have raised the question of what happens to an offender who repents and wishes to be forgiven when the victim is no longer able to forgive. Scarre offers a case in which an offender decides to repent and seek forgiveness just as the victim is dying, and arrives at the victim’s deathbed a short time after her death. This example was suggested to me by Kate Padgett-Walsh. 24 38 The Nature of Forgiveness and Resentment Minas allows for a family member or close friend to step in and forgive the offender on behalf of the victim in this type of case.

In keeping with this aim, I will offer what might be called a “precising” analysis of the attitudes of forgiveness and resentment. The analysis offered here should coincide with our ordinary understandings of forgiveness and resentment.

Controversial Aspects of the Nature of Forgiveness So far, I have offered a general conceptual analysis of the attitudes of resentment and forgiveness.
