The Culture of Toleration in Diverse Societies

Reasonable Tolerance

Catriona Mckinnon and Dario Castiglione

Published by Manchester University Press

  • Newly available in paperback Toleration is one of the most important issues for the definition of a moral and political theory with application to modern globalised societies Recognises the new terms of the debate - a new consensus is slowly emerging of tolerance that is reasonable in two ways, of seeing the other's viewpoint and the limited extent to which toleration can be granted Reflects the cross-thematic and cross-disciplinary nature of such discussions, dissecting a number of debates such as liberalism and communitarianism, public and private, multiculturalism and the politics of identity, and a number of disciplines: moral, legal and political philosophy, historical and educational studies, anthropology, sociology and psychology
  • Scrutinises the philosophical foundation, the normative content and the broadly political implications of a new culture of toleration for diverse societies
