In a pluralistic society such as ours, tolerance is a virtuebut it doesn't always seem so. Some suspect that it entangles us in unacceptable moral compromises and inequalities of power, while others dismiss it as mere political correctness or doubt that it can safeguard the moral and political relationships we value.Tolerance among the Virtuesprovides a vigorous defense of tolerance against its many critics and shows why the virtue of tolerance involves exercising judgment across a variety of different circumstances and relationshipsnot simply applying a prescribed set of rules.

Drawing inspiration from St. Paul, Aquinas, and Wittgenstein, John Bowlin offers a nuanced inquiry into tolerance as a virtue. He explains why the advocates and debunkers of toleration have reached an impasse, and he suggests a new way forward by distinguishing the virtue of tolerance from its false look-alikes, and from its sibling, forbearance. Some acts of toleration are right and good, while others amount to indifference, complicity, or condescension. Some persons are able to draw these distinctions well and to act in accord with their better judgment. When we praise them as tolerant, we are commending them as virtuous. Bowlin explores what that commendation means.

Tolerance among the Virtuesoffers invaluable insights into how to live amid differences we cannot endorsebeliefs we consider false, actions we think are unjust, institutional arrangements we consider cruel or corrupt, and persons who embody what we oppose.

John R. Bowlinis the Robert L. Stuart Associate Professor of Philosophy and Christian Ethics at Princeton Theological Seminary. He is the author ofContingency and Fortune in Aquinas's Ethics. If all this hardheaded, disenchanted talk is getting you down, consider the refined and rarefied argument inTolerance Among the Virtues. ---James Ryerson,New York Times Book Review Bowlin delivers here an extremely tils*
