The intolerable – dignity to be preserved

Activity: Talk or presentation typesOral presentationScientific


Tolerance must be founded in respecting each other. Lacking respect and relativizing human dignity infect social atmosphere. This becomes visible in political radical thinking, brutality in society, relations breaking easily and increasing psychical diseases as for ex. depression. Normally the source of these difficulties is not seen: the lack of crucial values as f.ex. dignity. My thesis is that forgetting about the central values means forgetting about the human person. From this results a breakdown of dignity which effects society in a very destructive way. This is why tolerance must itself aim at guarding the central values.
