The Social Construction of Forgiveness

Thomas Trzyna


Recent work on forgiveness in both psychology and philosophy tends to view forgiving as an action that takes place almost exclusively within an interpersonal context. According to Thomas Trzyna, a diverse body of sociological research suggests that forgiving can be meaningful between groups, and that third-person forgiving can also be morally justified. Mr. Trzyna is Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences at Seattle Pacific University.
