About this product
- DescriptionQuestions of tolerance are as old as human society. In ackwledgment of the crucial importance of tolerance and intolerance in contemporary life, a conference was convened in 2007. The 16 papers included in this volume all have their origins in that conference, which brought together a wide array of over 100 academics from fifteen nations, all interested in furthering discussion on tolerance. The goal of this book is to stimulate further historical and contemporary critical reflection on the foundational philosophical, religious, and cultural value and problematic future of tolerance. The title - Literature, Culture, and Tolerance - emphasizes the interconnections between the social and the artistic, between the political and the literary, in thinking through the phemena of tolerance and intolerance in the modern world.
