INSTITUTIONS AND DECLARATIONS (REMARKS ON ROBERT PILAT'S 'ONTOLOGY OF RECONCILIATION') (Instytucje i deklaracje (uwagi do artykulu Roberta Pilata 'Ontologia pojednania'))
Languages of publication
The paper contains remarks concerning Robert Pilat's paper 'The Ontology of Reconciliation', mainly on the concepts of reconciliation's effectiveness and the difference between the notions of forgiveness and reconciliation. The main claim of the paper is that it is impossible to transfer the notion of forgiveness directly from the sphere of individuals into the sphere of politics. In the first part, the authoress claims that we can only analyze reconciliation's effectiveness in the context of political, and not moral action. In the second part, the authoress claims that it is reconciliation and not forgiveness that supports good relations between states with a difficult mutual past.
