2021 Knox Lecture: Further Reflections on Tolerance and its Difficulty Tim Scanlon (Harvard University)

This year's Knox Lecture, ‘Further Reflections on Tolerance and its Difficulty', will be given by Tim Scanlon of Harvard University.

The lecture revisits the account of tolerance discussed in the author's paper, ‘The Difficulty of Tolerance', with the aim of clarifying:

  • the reasons people have to care about the character of their society
  • the range of others to whom the duties of tolerance are owed
  • whether the reasons for being concerned with the character of one's society are also reasons to object to immigration that would affect this character.
