Hume on forgiveness and the unforgivable

Utilitas 19 (4):447-465 (2007)
Abstract
Are torture and torturers unforgivable? The article examines this question in the light of a Humean account of forgiveness. Initially, the Humean account appears to suggest that torturers are unforgivable. However, in the end, I argue it provides us with good reasons to think that even torturers may be forgiven.
