Back cover copy
Toleration is one of the most complex and controversial concepts in modern political thought. Both historically and conceptually, toleration is one of the characteristics that defines the very essence of a liberal polity, and is a basic virtue associated with a liberal conception of citizenship. The complexity of the foundations, nature and value of toleration raises a number of questions related to the accommodation of diversity and the promotion of shared public values in education. "Toleration, Respect and Recognition in Education" brings together a collection of chapters examining the complexity of different interpretations of toleration, respect and recognition in education, as well as the difficulties associated with toleration in the context of education in our pluralistic societies.
