Religion, Intolerance, and Conflict

Joshua C. Thurow

Oxford University Press

This chapter addresses the question: Does religion cause intolerance or tolerance? It begins by considering possible motivations for asking the question. It then clarifies the components of the question to get a clearer view of what exactly we are asking. Getting clearer about what our motivations are in asking the question and what the question asks will help to reveal what kind of empirical information we need in order to answer our question. The chapter concludes by briefly suggesting some shortcomings of contemporary empirical work that are unveiled with a clearer understanding of our main question.

Keywords:   religion, tolerance, intolerance, empirical work
