To inflict punishment in return for injury or insult is called revenge.
The goal of revenge usually consists of forcing the professed wrongdoer to suffer the same or greater pain than that which was originally inflicted.
In ancient times, in particular those societies with weak central justice systems, the method for deterring murder was to allow the victim’s family to avenge the killing. However, if the families of the killer and victim disagreed in their moral assessment of the killing, they would most likely disagree as well in their assessment of any revenge actions which were taken, and a blood feud might ensue.
Historically, there are two schools of thought on revenge.
The Bible, in Exodus 21;23, instructs us to ‘give life for life, eye for eye, tooth for tooth, hand for hand, foot for foot’ to punish an offender. But more than 2,000 years later, Martin Luther King Jr., responded, ‘The old law of ‘an eye for an eye’ leaves everybody blind’.
As per research, revenge may be frowned upon, but the urge to extract a pound of flesh, is primed in the genes. A new brain-imaging study suggests we feel satisfaction when we punish others for bad behaviour.
