MA in Political and Legal Theory: Toleration


Course Description

Overview

The MA Political and Legal Theory: Toleration, provides an opportunity to think about toleration from historical, legal, and philosophical perspectives. Students have the chance to explore the arguments for toleration made by thinkers such as John Locke, Pierre Bayle, and John Stuart Mill, and against it by their enemies, to test the limits of these arguments in discussions of controversial issues such as pornography, faith schools and Holocaust denial.
As well as studying toleration, students also have the opportunity to explore fundamental questions in political and legal theory and to pursue their wider interests in politics and philosophy, choosing from a range of options offered by the Departments of Politics, Philosophy and the York Law School. They will also write a dissertation on a topic of their choosing.
The C and JB Morrell Trust provide financial support to a number of students on this degree programme.
