A PHILOSOPHY CONFERENCE - PHILOSOPHY OF TOLERANCE On 08.05.2012 we organized a conference entitled Philosophy of Tolerance as part of our Comenius project -TOLERANCE as a Key to Social Integration Into European Dimension for Young Citizens. Students from 9 to12 grades took part in it.. Discussions and comments brought up disputes about if rationality should always conduct us or consensus that it is better to live in peace. The students looked for the answer in The Parable of the Good Samaritan, an animated version of which they watched. Finally, Albert Camus was paraphrased: tolerant individual, especially freely chosen to be tolerant, i.e. personality, the Ego in its power to create human relations would be a more beautiful view, if it has moved beyond colourless tolerance.
