Profesor John Inazu, Sally D. Danforth Distinguished Professor of Law & Religion and Professor of Political Science, discusses his book, Confident Pluralism. The book argues that one can and must live together peaceably in spite of deep and sometimes irresolvable differences over politics, religion, sexuality, and other important matters. There are two ways of achieving this - by insisting on constitutional commitments that honor and protect difference and by embodying tolerance, humility, and patience in speech, collective action, and relationships across difference. Confident Pluralism suggests that it is often better to tolerate than to protest, better to project humility than defensiveness, and better to wait patiently for the fruits of persuasion than to force the consequences of coercion.
