GALEOTTI TOLERATION AS RECOGNITION PDF

In Toleration as Recognition , Anna Elisabetta Galeotti offers a revision of the ideal of toleration that she hopes will deal effectively with the problems that face us in the twenty-first century without abandoning the core liberal ideals of equal respect and state neutrality. Such a position does not, she argues, require that others endorse the values of the group or even that they value differences as such; it only requires society to recognize the group because of its significance to the individuals who are a part of it. She understands the ways in which the members of minority groups can be undermined by the majority culture both in overt actions and in more subtle misunderstandings, especially in the numerous ways white male Christian values are simply accepted as the norm by which everyone is judged. In addition, Galeotti adds a European perspective to a debate that is, ironically, often focused on North American problems. She nicely illustrates her view through the use of three extended case studies: the wearing of veils by Muslim schoolgirls in France, the existence of speech codes and hate-crimes legislation, and the debates surrounding the marriage of homosexuals.

In this book, Anna Elisabetta Galeotti examines the most intractable problems which toleration encounters and argues that what is really at stake is not religious or moral disagreement but the unequal status of different social groups. Liberal theories of toleration fail to grasp this and consequently come up with normative solutions that are inadequate when confronted with controversial cases.

Galeotti proposes, as an alternative, toleration as recognition, which addresses the problem of according equal respect to groups as well as equal liberty to individuals. She offers an interpretation that is both a revision and an expansion of liberal theory, in which toleration constitutes an important component not only of a theory of justice, but also of the politics of identity.

Her study will appeal to a wide range of readers in political philosophy, political theory, and law. Read more Read less. Review ' The discussion of the practical cases provides a useful illustration of her view, and would serve as a good starting place for students The Philosophical Quarterly 'This book will be warmly greeted by the many political theorists who celebrate the politics of identity and 'difference'.

This book makes an important contribution to this highly charged debate. It gives also an informative overview of that debate. Strongly recommended. This book is a valuable contribution both to the theory of liberalism and to the theory of recognition.

Its central argument, that certain specific commitments to recognition follow from the best understanding of the liberal doctrine of toleration, is developed with considerable care and subtlety. Its insightful analysis of a number of specific cases enables its practical implications to be clearly seen. Given its richness, Toleration as Recognition prompts a whole range of questions. Her publications include Tolerance: A Pluralist Proposal , Philosophy on Identity Conflict , and a number of journal articles.
