A Psychological Inquiry into the Meaning and Concept of Forgiveness Book Description :

This book explores the psychological nature of forgiveness for both the subjective ego and what Jung called the objective psyche, or soul.

The issues are far more complex than this. Punishment may be con sidered in a great variety of contexts - leg...
