Executive Editor Frank Shushok Jr. Talks with Professor John D. Inazu about His Book, "Confident Pluralism: Surviving and Thriving through Deep Difference," and What It Means for the University
Inazu, John D.
About Campus, v23 n2 p4-10 May-Jun 2018
In this engaging interview, John D. Inazu identifies confident pluralism as the way for us to thrive in connection even when divided by deep differences. Since our differences are not just going to go away, we need to learn to live with others with whom we do not agree. Inazu explains that tolerance, humility, and patience are the foundational principles to do this. They provide the tools to respect others as people without accepting their viewpoints, to accept that we may not be able to convince people of the correctness of our viewpoint, and to allow room for ourselves and others to make mistakes and still keep the conversation going.
