The Science of Forgiveness – John Templeton Foundation


The Science of Forgiveness, written by leading scholar Dr. Everett L. Worthington, reveals key insights about forgiveness and its potential to heal society and ourselves. During the late 1990s, in the aftermath of the fall of Communism, Nelson Mandela’s election in South Africa, and an easing of the conflict in Northern Ireland, the world faced a new era in which former enemies tried to work with each other. Forgiveness took on new significance beyond religion, with which it had often been associated.
