Abstract:

Determining which moral principles should guide political action is a vexing question in political theory. This is especially true when faced with the "toleration paradox": believing that something is morally wrong but also believing that it is wrong to suppress it.

Building on a line of reasoning Locke made explicit in his later writings on religious toleration, Tuckness explores the.
