概要：The example highlights the vital importance of questions of toleration to modern multicultural societies. To what extent should we tolerate actions and ideas that people may find offensive? Does the idea of free speech require us to tolerate everything? What are the limits to tolerance in a modern, pluralist society? The MA Political Philosophy - the Idea of Toleration provides an opportunity to think about toleration from historical and contemporary perspectives. Students have the chance to explore the arguments for toleration made by thinkers such as John Milton, John Locke and John Stuart Mill, and to test the limits of those arguments in the discussion of controversial issues such as pornography, faith schools and holocaust denial. As well as studying toleration, students also have the opportunity to choose additional modules in political philosophy and to write a dissertation of up to 20,000 words on a topic of their choosing.
