Conference: Fountainheads of Toleration – Forms of Pluralism in Empires, Republics, Democracies.
Venice, 07/06/2018 – 09/06/2018
Organized in Venice by Reset Dialogues on Civilizations, the Humanities & Social Change Center at Ca‘ Foscari University and the Giorgio Cini Foundation, this conference explores the sources of toleration in diverse cultural and religious traditions, in both the secular liberal as in a confessional context, in different historical regions of the world, Western and Eastern, in the Christian history of thought as well as in Hebraism, Islam, Buddhism, Confucianism and Hinduism. In the history of these different systems of thought what are the developments that have led on the one side to an exclusivist, extremist and fundamentalist perspective and, on the other side, to an inclusive, pluralist, tolerant view?
