Difference and Dissent: Theories of Toleration in Medieval and Early Modern Europe (Paperback)

Unavailable. Withdrawn from sale by publisher.


This innovative collection points to the need for a reevaluation of the origins of toleration theory. Philosophers, intellectual historians, and political theorists have assumed that the development of the theory of toleration has been a product of the modern world, and John Locke is usually regarded as the first theorist of toleration. The contributors to Difference and Dissent, however, discuss a range of conceptual positions that were employed by medieval and early modern thinkers to support a theory of toleration, and question the claim that Locke's theory of toleration was as original or philosophically adequate as his adherents have asserted.

Cary J. Nederman is associate professor of political science at the University of Arizona and the author of numerous books, including Community and Consent: The Secular Political Theory of Marsiglio of Paduas Defensor Pacis and Medieval Political Theory-A Reader: The Quest for the Body Politic, 1100-1400. John Christian Laursen is associate professor of political science at the University of California, Riverdale. He is author of The Politics of Skepticism: in the Ancients, Montaigne, Hume, and Kant.
