Anger and Forgiveness

Resentment, Generosity, and Justice

Martha C. Nussbaum

  • Provides a bracing new view of forgiveness as a response to wrongdoing
  • Offers a wide-ranging exploration of anger and forgiveness from the personal realm into the political
  • Strips the notion of forgiveness down to its Judeo-Christian roots, where the notion of forgiveness was structured by the moral relationship between a score-keeping God and penitent mortals
  • Argues that the Stoics were right—we should recognize how petty most slights are, and avoid anger to begin with
