After Injury

A Historical Anatomy of Forgiveness, Resentment, and Apology

Ashraf H.A. Rushdy

  • Examines the historical evolution of forgiveness, resentment, and apology in order to understand what these practices mean for us now philosophically
  • Argues that there is a key moment in the historical evolution of each practice that defines what is most pressing for our contemporary debates about the meaning of these practices
  • Explores a variety of media - from Greek tragedy to modern film - to situate and give contexts for the philosophical debates
