What is tolerance and how does it differ from prejudice and discrimination? Is tolerance something that can be learned and therefore taught? Through well articulated discussions, Vogt explores these questions and addresses such issues as: can people be prepared to cope with diversity and equality; how much tolerance is wise and what in particular should be tolerated; what are the direct and indirect ways in which attitudes and values are learned; and do different types of tolerance require educational processes unique for each type? Reading this book will persuade you that the route to creating an environment in which diversity is welcomed is through the successful teaching of tolerance.
