About this product
- DescriptionIt seems more urgent than ever before to fend off the rising wave of intolerance and at the same time determine the nature of tolerance and its limits. As Ricoeur says in his Foreword: Tolerance is a tricky subject: too easy or too difficult. It is indeed too easy to deplore intolerance, without putting oneself into question, oneself and the different allegiances with which each person identifies. In order to explore these complexities, he has gathered together a number of prominent thinkers from various parts of the world and areas of activity and invited them to reflect on the obstacles and limits to tolerance. The Declaration of Principles on Tolerance, issued by the United Nations in 1995, rounds up this remarkable collection of essays. Contributors: Norberto Bobbio, Vaclav Havel, Jeanne Hersch, Bernard Williams, Octavio Paz, Ghislain Waterlot, Antoine Garapon, Mario Bettati, Yehudi Menuhin, Ramin Jahanbegloo, Abdelwahab Bouhdiba, Hans Kung, Wole Soyinka, Ionna Kucuradi, Monique Canto-Sperber, Paul Ricoeur, Desmond Tutu.
- Author BiographyPaul Ricoeur was, until his retirement in 1988, Professor of Philosophy, resp. the History of Philosophy, at the universities of Strasbourg, Paris and Chicago.
