TOPIC:

Tolerance

I like to think that we're a rather tolerant group. Our membership is incredibly diverse across various social, cultural, and ideological spectra. In order to even have a proper philosophical discussion there must be both disagreement as well as a willingness to engage with people despite these differences of opinion. As a central component of this group, we will explore the meaning and implications of tolerance.

Questions:

• What is tolerance? What do we mean when we use this term?

• Is tolerance always a good thing?

• Can tolerance have meaningful limits, or is it an "all or nothing" affair?

• What of the Paradox of Tolerance, where the tolerant are intolerant of intolerance?

Location and Price:

This meetup will be just outside the cafe inside Half-Price Books (near the fish tank). There is also a suggested (but by no means mandatory) $2 donation to help cover the cost of maintaining this meetup group.
