At a time when Voltaire’s Treaties on Tolerance is climbing the bestseller list in France, Europe was seeking, with a particular sense of urgency, an answer to the pressing dilemma of how to build a tolerant society amidst its cultural diversity.

Claudio Magris and Amin Maalouf, two leading European writers and cultural philosophers, have offered in the last decades an analysis of Europe’s ills and a constructive reflection on the roots of intolerance. Their works constitute an antidote to the dangers of present-day radicalism and an informed set of guidelines for Europe’s troubled present.
