    Overview

    Aims and Scope

    Until quite recently, it was unthinkable that conflicts would arise in the Western world that recalled religious wars of the distant past. It may be questionable whether recalling the historical origins of our notion of tolerance will change today’s conflicts, yet it is important to understand the past, as potential solutions may be found in the early modern discourse on the politics of natural rights. This volume offers the necessary foundation.

    Reviews

    "Mag sich auch ‚Toleranz‘, wenigstens in ihrer praktischen Applikation, als eine Paradoxie erweisen, mithin einen Begriff darstellen, der sich selbst verunmöglicht, so folgt daraus keineswegs die Unmöglichkeit seiner Darstellung – wie sich an diesem gelungenen Band sehen lässt."
    Dennis Borghardt in: www.literaturkritik.de
