Between Mere Tolerance and Robust Respect: Mutuality as a Basis for Civic Education in Pluralist Democracies
Rosenblith, Suzanne; Bindewald, Benjamin
Educational Theory, v64 n6 p589-606 Dec 2014
This essay by Suzanne Rosenblith and Benjamin Bindewald is motivated by the question of how do those who value civic liberalism give the religiously orthodox a reason to engage in pluralist democratic deliberations in a manner that does not allow intolerance to undermine the foundations of liberal democracy. Introducing the idea of tolerance as mutuality--that is, a will to relationship--the authors argue, strikes a balance between those theories that are too demanding of the religiously orthodox and those that are not exacting enough. Applying the principle of tolerance as mutuality to the special space of public schools allows for a new way to conceptualize civic education in pluralist democracies.
