(Routledge Studies in Twentieth Century Philosophy)

No critic rating

Waiting for minimum critic reviews


Toleration would seem to be the most rational response to deep conflicts. However, by examining the conditions under which trust can develop between warring parties, it becomes clear that a fundamental shift in values - a conversion - is required before toleration makes sense. This book argues that maintaining trust is the key to stable practices of toleration.
