This chapter examines the case of placing toleration at the core of a political theory. It explains why toleration occupies a central position in a theory founded on freedom of association and liberty of conscience. It argues that taking toleration seriously means tolerating much that liberals are often unwilling to countenance, since it means that liberal societies should tolerate illiberalism.
