Anger and Forgiveness Book Description:

We live in a culture of apology and forgiveness. But while there are a few thinkers who criticize forgiveness in favor of retribution, philosopher and intellectual Martha C. Nussbaum is unique in criticizing the supposed virtue from the other side: forgiveness, Nussbaum asserts, is at itsheart inquisitorial and disciplinary. In this book based on her 2014 Locke Lectures, Nussbaum hones in first on anger and then on forgiveness, so vigorously championed today as a replacement emotion. Arguing that anger includes not only the idea of a serious wrong but also the idea that it would be a good thing if the wrongdoer sufferedsome bad consequence, Nussbaum asserts that anger, so understood, is always normatively problematic in one or the other of two possible ways. One way makes the mistake of thinking that the suffering of the wrongdoer restores the thing that was damaged. The other requires the victim to see the injuryas about relative status and only about that. While anger is sometimes useful as a signal that things have gone wrong, as a motive to address them, and as a deterrent to wrongdoing, its core ideas are profoundly flawed: either incoherent in the first case, or normatively ugly in the second. Neitheris anger as useful as it is often taken to be.Nussbaum goes on to strip the notion of forgiveness down to its Judeo-Christian roots, where the primary moral relationship is that between an omniscient score-keeping God and erring, penitent mortals. The relationship between a wronged human and another is, she says, based on this primary God-humanrelationship. Nussbaum agrees with Nietzsche in seeing in Judeo-Christian forgiveness a displaced vindictiveness and a concealed resentment that are ungenerous and unhelpful in human relations. The process of forgiveness can bolster a narcissistic resentment better eschewed in favor of a newparadigm based on generosity, justice, and truth.

Anger and Forgiveness Book Description:

Anger is not just ubiquitous, it is also popular. Many people think it is impossible to care sufficiently for justice without anger at injustice. Many believe that it is impossible for individuals to vindicate their own self-respect or to move beyond an injury without anger. To not feel anger in those cases would be considered suspect. Is this how we should think about anger, or is anger above all a disease, deforming both the personal and the political? In this wide-ranging book, Martha C. Nussbaum, one of our leading public intellectuals, argues that anger is conceptually confused and normatively pernicious. It assumes that the suffering of the wrongdoer restores the thing that was damaged, and it betrays an all-too-lively interest in relative status and humiliation. Studying anger in intimate relationships, casual daily interactions, the workplace, the criminal justice system, and movements for social transformation, Nussbaum shows that anger's core ideas are both infantile and harmful. Is forgiveness the best way of transcending anger? Nussbaum examines different conceptions of this much-sentimentalized notion, both in the Jewish and Christian traditions and in secular morality. Some forms of forgiveness are ethically promising, she claims, but others are subtle allies of retribution: those that exact a performance of contrition and abasement as a condition of waiving angry feelings. In general, she argues, a spirit of generosity (combined, in some cases, with a reliance on impartial welfare-oriented legal institutions) is the best way to respond to injury. Applied to the personal and the political realms, Nussbaum's profoundly insightful and erudite view of anger and forgiveness puts both in a startling new light.

Past Life DNA Book Description:

To BREAK the CYCLE. . . Love Yourself First Whenever asked, Katie Lizowski had always said, “Sure, I love myself.” In her naiveté she assumed that had made it so. But the challenge of loving herself was not that simple. To love herself required trust in the unknown, honoring her feelings in the face of intimidation, and surrendering her ego. And what had Katie done the better part of her life? Caved in to what she had really wanted to pursue and kept quiet about her true feelings and opinions. And why had she done that? It would keep the peace and make everyone happy. Or so she thought. But in its wake, she had built up colossal layers of anger and resentment. Now ask yourself this? Do you have goals you’ve dismissed because of fear of the unknown or from another’s intimidation? Do you have feelings and opinions about something no one else knows about but you? And those feelings and experiences get replayed over and over in your mind? Is your life stuck in neutral? Julia Thornbrough’s journey as seen through the eyes of Katherine Lizowski shows how she removed huge layers of anger and hurt not only from this lifetime but from beyond. And what kept her former husband and her returning for seven lifetimes? It was their inability to forgive. Every experience has molded who you are today. They’ve defined you and have shaped your reaction to life’s circumstances. What matters most is that your new life, the one you were to meant to live, can start now. If your life isn’t happy or you find yourself repeating the same relationships, why not shorten your learning curve? Read Julia’s story. Discover how forgiveness, combined with claiming your emotions, can take happiness from a dream to reality.
