Talmudic Controversies in Post-Talmudic EyesToleration within Judaism (2013)
The concepts of disagreement, diversity, toleration, and pluralism all belong to the experience of multiplicity and heterogeneity in social life, but while disagreement and diversity describe states, toleration and pluralism denote
attitudes and normative values.This chapter analyses various accounts of disagreement and diversity as they occurred in fact, without necessarily suggesting any normative implication, although accounts of diversity may reasonably be regarded at times as a transitional phase between the acknowledgement of disagreement as a fact of life and the adoption of toleration or pluralism as a normative world-view.
