Vernon Press: The Philosophy of Forgiveness Series

Underrepresented Perspectives on Forgiveness

Edited by: Court D. Lewis


Call for Book Chapter Proposals

Vernon Press invites book chapter proposals to be included in a forthcoming scholarly volume on underrepresented perspectives on forgiveness, including those that appear in books, art, and other forms of visual (and/or popular) media. All philosophically-based schools of thought are encouraged to submit. Other disciplines are encouraged to submit, as long as the chapter contains a clear philosophical component. Also, proposals dealing with corollary issues like resentment, anger, mercy, and vengeance are welcome, as long as they are appropriately related to and clearly discussed in relation to forgiveness.



Vernon Press has commissioned Volume 5 in their The Philosophy of Forgiveness Series. The volume will focus on underrepresented perspectives of forgiveness, in both academic and popular resources, such as books, art, music, movies, and other relevant media. Chapters should clearly argue, explain, and/or interpret the conception of forgiveness relevant to the author’s research.



Abstracts Due: 10 October 2019

Notification of Acceptance: 10 November 2019

Finalized Draft Due: 10 May 2020

Finalized Paper: August 2020


Submission Details

Proposals should be between 300-700 words, and should clearly describe the author’s thesis and provide an overview of the proposed chapter’s structure. All proposals should be prepared for blind review, removing any reference to the author. As a separate document, authors should provide a short CV containing contact information and relevant publications, presentations, and/or research on forgiveness.  Please email questions and submissions to court.lewis@kctcs.edu.

    I like this forgiveness/promises quote:

    “The possible redemption from the predicament of irreversibility──of being unable to undo what one has done──is the faculty of forgiving. The remedy for unpredictability, for the chaotic uncertainty of the future, is contained in the faculty to make and keep promises. Both faculties depend upon plurality, on the presence and acting of others, for no man can forgive himself and no one can be bound by a promise made only to himself.”

    ― Hannah Arendt, The Human Condition
