Example text

See Margalit, The Decent Society, 176–80; also Becker, ‘Nachdenken u 41. Compare the (contrasting) notions of respect of Scanlon, ‘The Difficulty of Tolerance’, Yovel, ‘Tolerance as Grace and as Rightful Recognition’ and Bobbio, ‘Tolerance and Truth’, 134. g. a religious community). This is based on respect for the moral autonomy of the individual and her ‘right to justification’ of norms which claim to be reciprocally and generally valid. Notwithstanding the (important but here not further thematised)44 alternative between justifications based upon a theory that – following classical liberalism – treats the right to be the autonomous author of one’s life as central and justifications based upon an approach which emphasises the principle of the impartial justification of universal norms of justice, the respect conception does not require that the tolerating parties must regard and value the others’ conceptions of the good as equally (or in part) true and ethically good but that they should be able to view them (and here the alternative again comes into play) as the results of autonomous choices or as not immoral.

This distinction (which is also disputed in English) does not exist in German. For my use of these terms see note 1 in the introduction. 29. Walzer, On Toleration, in particular chs. 1 and 2. Toleration societies. 31 Although particular dimensions of justification will already be broached, only in the course of the first part of the study will it become apparent which justifications are compatible with these conceptions. (1) On the first conception, which I call the permission conception, toleration designates the relation between an authority or a majority and a minority (or several minorities) which does not subscribe to the dominant system of values.

On the parallel, equally prevalent intolerance in the Roman Empire see ibid. 275–9. See also K¨ otting, Religionsfreiheit und Toleranz im Altertum, 20–8. 3. See Garnsey, ‘Religious Toleration in Classical Antiquity’, 9. 36 More than a prehistory were classified as dangerous or there was a prospect of useful alliances. Such constellations reveal, on the one hand, that granting liberties in accordance with the permission conception generally rests on strategic considerations, but also, on the other, that in such contexts the essential arguments for more extensive toleration are developed by the victims of persecution and oppression who oppose the existing social order.
