Planned Forgiveness

American Philosophical Quarterly 44 (3):285 - 296 (2007)
Abstract
My argument is that, strictly, forgiveness cannot be planned in advance in part because ’to plan to forgive when X happens’ is already to forgive (as long as one foresees X happening). I go on to argue that if one foresees that X would involve great moral harm to an innocent, it is clearly better to prevent X (if possible) and forgive without it. The main interest of these arguments is their bearing on certain Christian accounts of the atonement for sins through the (planned) suffering and death of Jesus
