Details

This thoughtful paper questions how forgiveness has been described in recent medical models of death and bereavement. The author suggests that these ideas have at times promoted unnecessary deathbed conversations, in which awkward attempts to rush the process of forgiveness may serve to further distance people from deceased loved ones. The paper reviews the concept of revising the 'memberships' of life, the connection between forgiveness and this membership, and considerations of power.
