from Lawrence, Sunday PhiloMadrid meeting: Neither forgive nor forget

Dear Friends,

This Sunday, we are discussing rather different subject: Neither forgive nor forget.

A key question of the function of forgiveness is that it is not clear who is actually benefiting
when we forgive. Is it the person we are forgiving benefiting in the sense that we are promising not
to take revenge at a later date? Or are we benefiting in the sense that, given that we cannot take
revenge, or maybe given that we have already taken decisive revenge, then we put the issue to rest
by pretending that the status quo has been restored.

See you Sunday,
