Vernon Press: The Philosophy of Forgiveness Series

Unheard Voices of Forgiveness: Exploring Underrepresented Perspectives and Confronting Racism, Sexism, and Xenophobia
Edited by: Court D. Lewis

Vernon Press invites book chapter proposals to be included in a forthcoming scholarly volume on the philosophy of forgiveness. All proposals related to the title are welcome, but special consideration will be given to those that address specific issues related to racism, sexism, and xenophobia. All philosophically-based schools of thought are encouraged to submit, as are other disciplines, 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.

Submission Details

All proposals/chapters 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
