520    "At the heart of Montaigne's Essais lies a political 
       conception of religious tolerance that we have largely 
       forgotten today. In contemporary popular and academic 
       discourse, tolerance of religious and other differences 
       most often appears as an individual ethical disposition or
       a moral principle of public law. For Montaigne, tolerance 
       is instead a political capacity: the power and ability to 
       negotiate relationships of basic trust and civil peace 
       with one's opponents in political conflict. Contemporary 
       thinkers often argue that what matters most for tolerance 
       is how we talk to our political opponents: with respect, 
       reasonableness, and civility. For Montaigne, what matters 
       most is not how, but rather that we talk to each other 
       across lines of disagreement. In his view, any effective 
       politics of tolerance requires actors with a sufficiently 
       high tolerance for this political activity.  Using his own
       experience negotiating between warring Catholic and 
       Huguenot parties as a model, Montaigne investigates and 
       publicly prescribes a set of skills, capacities, and 
       dispositions that might help his readers to become the 
       kinds of people who can initiate and sustain dialogue with
       the "other side" to achieve public goods - even when 
       respect, reasonableness, and civility are not yet assured.
       Montaigne and the Tolerance of Politics argues that this 
       dimension of tolerance is worth recovering and 
       reconsidering in contemporary democratic societies, in 
       which partisan "sorting" and multidimensional polarization
       has evidently rendered political leaders and ordinary 
       citizens less and less able to talk to each other to 
       resolve political conflicts and to cooperate on matters of
       common public concern"--|cProvided by publisher 
520    "Toleration is one of the most studied concepts in 
       contemporary political theory and philosophy, yet the 
       range of contemporary normative prescriptions concerning 
       how to do toleration or how to be tolerant is remarkably 
       narrow and limited. Contemporary thinking about toleration
       evinces, paradoxically, an intolerance of politics. This 
       book argues for toleration as a practice of negotiation, 
       looking to a philosopher not usually considered political:
       Michel de Montaigne. For Montaigne, toleration is an 
       expansive, active practice of political endurance in 
       negotiating public goods across lines of value difference.
       In other words, to be tolerant means to possess a 
       particular set of political capacities for negotiation. 
       Douglas Thompson draws on Montaigne's Essais to recover 
       the idea that political negotiation grows out of genuine 
       care for public goods and the establishment of political 
       trust. Thompson argues that we need a Montaignian 
       conception of toleration today if we are to negotiate 
       effectively the circumstances of increasing political 
       polarization and ongoing value conflict, and he applies 
       this notion to current debates in political theory, as 
       well to contemporary issues, including the problem of 
       migration and refugee asylum. Additionally, for Montaigne 
       scholars, he reads the Essais principally as a work of 
       public political education, and resituates the work as an 
       extension of Montaigne's political activity as a high-
       level negotiator between Catholic and Huguenot parties 
       during the French Wars of Religion"--|cProvided by
