In the Face of the Absolute: Who are we as "human" beings? Don't have a World Wisdom ID? Online Library of Articles. The dead cannot forgive, and the living shouldn't -- but failure to forgive itself begets more pain, more vengeful action and emotion.
And yet 'the underlying goodness of the world forms part of our ordinary experience of it, and it makes us want to go on living' pp. That 'goodness' is 'the generosity of life' -- a notion, White says, that is mostly neglected or rejected by philosophers except for Nietzsche, Heidegger and Derrida.

Plotinus and his followers might have provided more resources: Our aim should be to join or rejoin the dance, by attending to its leader, looking toward the omnipresent source. Our lives and talents are gifts whether or not there is a conscious giver , and we can transform at least our attitude and response to personal and cosmic pain by practising the art of giving.
There are perils in this as an abstract recipe: Simone Weil was either a saint or an anorexic in hoping to efface herself 'when I am anywhere I pollute the silence of earth and sky with my breathing and the beating of my heart', she said in her Notebooks tr.
But a self-effacing generosity of spirit is needed to forgive -- especially when such forgiveness seems irrational or even wrong. There are some acts -- and the Holocaust is only one example -- which seem to demand an absolute and unwavering condemnation: A more theologically minded author might at this point recall the point of the Atonement: Someone -- God Himself -- has taken on the penalty for sin so that sinners may at last be reconciled.
That doctrine, of course, excites considerable scorn among rationalizing moralists -- but the alternatives do seem worse: And yet exactly these examples of an absolute iniquity reveal by opposition a further virtue: White concentrates on 'the idea of reverence for human beings', though he also acknowledges the possibility of reverence for 'nature' and the manifold assembly of those non-human beings with whom we share the world and on whom we are dependent. I may also, of course, feel a corresponding shame that I have failed to live accordingly.

White makes particular use of Martin Buber here, in his account of I-You encounters. Those encounters must be bodily, subject to time and change, and the post-human expectation of our radical restructuring leads only to an 'inhuman' future so Lyotard proposed. Christian theologians might at this point speak of a desired event, 'the resurrection of the body'. It is even impossible to decide whether or not the millions of so-called 'witches' who were brutally massacred in the Middle Ages at the urging of Christian clergymen were Witches at all.
