Book Description

Toleration is a core issue within contemporary political debates. In this book distinguished public figures, including philosophers, historians, lawyers and religious leaders reflect on the importance of tolerance and the dangers of intolerance, both historically and in the present day. George Carey and Julia Neuberger concentrate on the issues surrounding religious toleration while Helena Kennedy emphasises the role of toleration in legal contexts. Christopher Hill takes an historical approach, looking at toleration in 17th century England while Bernard Williams discusses the idea of philosophical justification of toleration. Garrett Fitzgerald concentrates in the idea of Toleration and Solidarity while Michael Ignatieff discusses the highly topical issue of Nationalism and Toleration. Alasdair McIntyre concludes with an examination of Toleration and the Goodof Conflict.
