By Thomas Docherty
Docherty outlines a philosophy of confession that has pertinence for a modern political tradition according to the suggestion of 'transparency'.

Docherty exhibits that regardless of the tendency to treat transparency as a basic social and moral reliable, our modern tradition of transparency has engendered a society during which autonomy (or the very authority of the topic that announces 'I confess') is grounded in guilt, reparation and victimhood.
