There is by now an enormous, and growing, philosophical literature on forgiveness. Since at least Downie 1965 (cited under Forgiveness and Virtue), philosophers have produced articles, monographs, encyclopedia entries, and anthologized collections of essays on the conceptual, normative, phenomenological, and social-political nature of forgiveness. Much of this literature may be categorized as follows: General Overviews, Historical Sources, Emotions of Forgiveness, Acts of Forgiveness, Political Forgiveness, Self-Forgiveness, Feminist Approaches to Forgiveness, Forgiveness in Continental Philosophy, Forgiveness and Punishment, the Normative Status of Forgiveness, Third-Party Forgiveness, Paradoxes of Forgiveness, and God and Forgiveness. While no attempt has been made to canvass all the philosophical literature on the topic, and there is considerable overlap between the sections of this article, the following annotated citations aim to provide a guide to much of that literature.
