Educational Objectives:
Participants will be able to
  • discuss and analyze the plasticity and volatility of the meanings of "forgiveness" and "being forgiven", and how this plasticity and volatility contribute to those terms' moral, social and psychological standings.
  • discuss the fundamental links between "forgiveness", "being forgiven", psychological separateness and a "working boundary" between the self and the external world necessary for the delay of action in favor of reflective thought.
  • discuss and analyze psychoanalytic biases in favor of, and difficulties related to, the values of forgiveness and reconciliation as a result of the field's grounding in the liberal enlightenment tradition.
  • discuss and analyze the enigmatic nature of forgiveness and the perpetual work of interpretation it requires in the forgiver.

 

Please feel free to submit proposals for upcoming programs.
