Forget the pretense of religious harmony. Since we all have to live together, tolerating one another [...]is the best we’ve got.
Adam Seligman, a College of Arts & Sciences professor of religion, thinks pluralism has had its day, so he’s aiming for something more realistic. He’s trying to see if we all can just get along, despite our religious differences.
Seligman, a research associate at BU’s Institute on Culture, Religion and World Affairs, is the founder of the annual International Summer School on Religion and Public Life. Since 2003, it’s brought together people of different countries and faiths (and those with none) for two weeks to explore issues of religion and tolerance in modern societies.
