Abstract

Because the traditional liberal understanding of toleration has been formalistic rather than substantive, the question of where to draw the line between "tolerable" and "intolerable" remains. One approach, borrowing the concept of profound offense from legal philosophy, is to locate the line of separation between "tolerable" and "intolerable" at the notion of profound offense.
