Toleration and Political Violence

The author comments on the article by B.G.Kapustin “To the Notion of Political Violence” (Polis, 2003, ¹ 6). Three theses are argued: toleration emerges from violence; political practice of tolerance includes violence; toleration is pierced with violence. S.G.Ilyinskaya turns both to materials of history (destruction of Indians in America) and to modernity (problems of interethnic relations).
