Dangerous Uncertainty

By Michah Gottlieb

Josh Rolnick, The Sh'ma Institute, April 2012

The author discusses John Locke's theory of uncertainty, which is that since no one can know the way to salvation for certain, we must tolerate others. This leads to a crucial modern argument for toleration: Our tolerance of others is grounded in our inability to be certain about our own beliefs.
