Abstract [en]

This litterature study is an analysis of the concept of tolerance, as it is a central value in the

curriculum for the Swedish upper secondary school (Gy11) and therefore an important part of

interpreting the specific curriculum for religious studies. The scientific approach is drawn from

curriculum theory and the method of analysis is hermeneutic. Four different understandings of the

concept are presented from academic literary sources. To further problematize the understandings of

the concept, critique against a ”pedagogy of tolerance” as expressed by normcritical pedagogical

writers and scholars is presented and analyzed. Implications regarding didactical practice are

discussed in the light of previous analysis. Two main criteria for tolerance were found in all four

understandings. These criterias outline the necessary components of an act of tolerance. The critique

mainly focuses on said act, as it is an act of power and differentiation. This implies the didactical

importance of awareness regarding the complexity of an act of tolerance.
