What is forgiveness? Is it an act or a process? Should we, or perhaps can we, forgive wrongs done to another? Is it right to forgive wrongdoers too quickly? And (something we should be prepared to consider) are there some things that are simply unforgivable?
Our October meeting was a talk by Dr Stephen Burwood. Dr Burwood’s research interests are primarily in the philosophy of mind and the philosophy of human embodiment, though he has also written in the fields of environmental philosophy and the philosophy of education. Stephen is a member of the Philosophy of Education Society of Great Britain, the Society for Applied Philosophy and the Humanist Philosophers Group. His other interests include the later Wittgenstein, especially On Certainty. Recent publications include An Introduction to Metaphilosophy (with Søren Overgaard and Paul Gilbert) (Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 2013).
