Call-Bezeichnung: Call for Papers
Ort: Manchester, UK
Veranstaltende Institution: Manchester Centre for Political Theory
Standardly, forgiveness is seen as the overcoming, on moral grounds, of vindictive passions – the passions of anger, resentment, and even hatred, that are often occasioned when one has been deeply wronged by another (e.g. Murphy, 1988). However, some authors see forgiveness as a normative phenomenon in the sense that forgiveness alters the norms of interaction between victim and wrongdoer (e.g. Warmke, 2016; Bennett, 2018) while pluralist accounts argue that forgiveness is a flexible concept that allows for a variety of changes of attitudes and practices according to the circumstances (e.g. Smith, 2008; Scarre, 2004).
In this workshop, we want to explore some of the following conceptual and normative issues that arise regarding the relationship between political forgiveness, memory and time. Possible topics might be:
- forgiveness and the duty to remember past crimes
- the relation between forgiving and forgetting,
- the role of the passing of time as a reason for forgiveness
- time and the notion of the unforgivable
- forgiveness and the discounting of the past
- forgiveness and the possibility of changing the significance of the past
- forgiveness as a future-related act
- the temporal structure of forgiveness as an act or as a process
