Abstract

© 2004 by Oxford University Press, Inc. All rights reserved. This chapter examines the concept and meaning of gratitude from a moral perspective. It argues against the prevailing sentiment that gratitude is inevitably positive and desirable. It stresses the importance of a moral underpinning for gratitude in order to present the distinctive character of the concept. It describes biases which can be recast as positive elements for gratitude's moral conceptualization.
