Description

Topic: Is Tolerance Overrated?

In a somber speech to its board of trustees delivered on Feb. 21, Stanford University’s ex-provost John Etchemendy warned that intolerance is the greatest threat facing American universities today. Adding his voice to a growing bipartisan chorus, Etchemendy argued that liberal academics too often assume their opponents are evil or stupid, turning institutions of higher education into unproductive echo chambers instead of arenas for open debate. “Intellectual monocultures … have taken over certain disciplines,” he observed grimly. “The university is not a megaphone to amplify this or that political view, and when it does it violates a core mission.”

Tolerance is an issue that is stretching every country, institution and community. Perhaps it is time to take a fresh look at this significant topic.

Socrates in the Vineyard is a relaxing evening over a glass of wine, smooth jazz, tasty hors d'oeurves and deep conversation. It is designed for those who enjoy grappling with the deeper issues of life. Whether it is questions of faith, philosophy or culture, we want people to challenge people to think through these issues. Perhaps it will help you think more clearly on an isse. Come and join us, regardless of the Worldview that informs your personal choices.
