About this product
- DescriptionThis provocative book addresses one of the most enduring puzzles in political philosophy and constitutional theory--why is religion singled out for preferential treatment in both law and public discourse? Why are religious obligations that conflict with the law accorded special toleration while other obligations of conscience are t? In Why Tolerate Religion?, Brian Leiter shows why our reasons for tolerating religion are t specific to religion but apply to all claims of conscience, and why a government committed to liberty of conscience is t required by the principle of toleration to grant exemptions to laws that promote the general welfare.
