Sample text

Forgiveness is not something that we do for ourselves alone, but something that we give or offer to another. The forgiving response is outward-looking and other-directed; it is supposed to make a difference to the wrongdoer as well as to ourselves, and it makes a difference in how we interact with the wrongdoer and with others. Even if the wrongdoer is no longer around-if he has since died, for exampleour forgiveness is still directed at him as an object of our thoughts and memories, and our behavior would be different were it possible to meet him again.

For interactionist dualism, for which human persons are embodied minds, where a mind is one sort of substance and a body another sort of substance, a human person is related to its parts as X is related to Y and Z. YANDELL: The Metaphysics and Morality of Forgiveness 39 healing, the recovery from the effects of having been harmed, that forgiving brings to a harmed person. This orientation is obviously important, and it would be cruel and foolish to question it. Of course, it need not be the only interest.

It is important to emphasize that I am not suggesting that the stages are necessarily experienced by wrongdoers as a result of their actions; clearly and regrettably, many wrongdoers never accept that they have done anything wrong or, if they do, they do not care or, if they do care, they do not try to change. Of course, the apparent absence of a moral sense and a person's inability or unwillingness to try to change are serious matters and surely present severe practical difficulties for those who have to deal with the wrongdoer.
