Anger and Forgiveness

Resentment, Generosity, Justice

Martha C. Nussbaum

  • Offers a wide-ranging exploration of anger and forgiveness from the personal realm into the political
  • Provides a controversial new view of forgiveness as a response to wrongdoing
  • Exposes the Judeo-Christian roots of forgiveness as it is understood in today's world-and argues that both Jewish and Christian traditions contain a counter-tradition in which generosity, love, and even humor replace the grim drama of penance and forgiveness
  • Features a wide range of literary and classical references as background
