So what is it to forgive Hubert for the wrong he did to me? The most
philosophically sophisticated and detailed account of forgiveness presently
available is that by Charles L. Griswold in Forgiveness: A Philosophical
Exploration.11 Griswold's account presupposes his insistence that the only
negative. 9. In my Justice: Rights and Wrongs, I argue that one can wrong
someone without being blamable for doing so. 10. Most English translations of

Everyone agrees that rape wrongs the victim; she has a right not to be raped.
Rape is a serious infraction of justice. But in what way has the rapist failed to pay
due regard to his victim for her achieved merit? As to autonomy, the rapist has
indeed restricted her autonomy. But I find it grotesque to suggest that what's
wrong about rape is that the victim's autonomy has been restricted. The rapist has
violated her; that's what wrong about it.44 In my book, Justice: Rights and Wrongs

1.4 Justice and Just War Let me conclude this introductory chapter by noting the
heavy intellectual debt I owe to the recent work of Nicholas Wolterstorff. The
conception of the JWT that I develop in the ensuing pages depends throughout
on a conception of justice that Wolterstorff has articulated in detail over the past
decade or so—principally in his Justice: Rights and Wrongs,39 secondarily in his
Justice in Love,40 most recently in his autobiographical Journey toward Justice:

nominalist philosophical developments which resulted in the sheer assertion of
subjective rights as ends in themselves. Thus the further contention by the O'
Donovans and MacIntyre that inherent human rights are implicated in a perverse
possessive ...

From as early as the second edition of Reason within the Bounds, published in
1984, and the Kuyper Lectures at the Free University of Amsterdam in 1981 (
published as Until Justice and Peace Embrace), through to his most recent work,
Wolterstorff's thought on shalom and its biblical roots is remarkably consistent.
For this reason, I have opted for a synthetic reading of Wolterstorff on this topic.
