Tolerance, Governmentality, Depoliticization. On the Crisis of a Concept - Tolerance is a crucial albeit controversial concept in today’s globalized political landscape. Following theorists such as Wendy Brown, Judith Butler, and Bonnie Honig, the author focuses on the discourse of multicultural tolerance as an index of a progressive mutation in the praxis of democratic citizenship. Whereas the discourse of tolerance seems to privatize conflicts and social relationships, hence to empty the participatory meaning of democracy as the power shared by the demos, collective practices of freedom and equality are shed into light as the corrective and counterbalance to the current depoliticization of the relation between self and other or, between a supposedly cosmopolitan Western identity and its ideologically constructed fundamentalist Other.
