《宽容》生动地描绘了在西方文化最显著的脉络——基督教文化的发展中。人类是怎样不断与“不宽容”作着斗争。宽容意味着个性与自由,而发现个性本身就是人类的一种进步。房龙在书中曾感慨地说:“生命本来是一次光荣的冒险,结果却变成了一场可怕的经历。之所以如此,就是因为迄今为止,人类的生存完全被恐惧所笼罩。我要重复一遍:所有不宽容的根源,都是恐惧。”书中洋溢着这样一种追求自由的人文情怀,它的中文版在上世纪80年代首度问世时,立即在中国掀起了热潮,极大地满足了整个时代充满激情的阅读品味。在极短的时间内,不同的版本接连而出,创造出难以想象的销售奇迹。这是一部宗教的历史,一部宽容与不宽容的历史,也是一部人性血腥与进步的历史。文图之间,它以犀利的笔触勾勒出了人类思想的嬗变轨迹,清晰地呈现了人类心灵深处的隐秘世界

 《宽容》是一本畅销近百年的通俗历史读本,作者房龙以深厚的人文关照及倡导思想自由的精神,解析了人类为寻求思想的权利所走过的艰辛历程,勾勒出一幅波澜壮阔的人类思想解放史。借助于房龙极其著名的“宽容”之眼,让我们重新发现和更深入地认识几千年来政治、宗教、文化、社会的曲折发展历史和人类寻求自身解放的漫长历程。

房龙(1882~1944):荷裔美国人,著名学者。他是出色的通俗作家,在历史、文化、文明、科学等方面都有著作,而且读者众多。他是伟大的知识普及者,大师级人物。从1913年起,他开始写书,直到1921年写出《人类的故事》,一举成名,从此饮誉世界。代表作包括《宽容》、《圣经的故事》、《发明的故事》、《房龙地理》等。郁达夫曾说。房龙的笔有一种魔力。干燥无味的科学常识经他那么一写。变得娓娓动人。

Van Loon, H.W(1882-1944), A Dutch-American historian and journalist. Born in Rotterdam, he went to the United States in19o3 to study at Cornell University. From the 1910s until his death, van Loon wrote many books, illustrating them himself. Most widely known among these is The Story of Mankind, a history of the world especially for children, which won the first Newbery Medal in i922. However, he also wrote many other very popular books aimed at young adults. As a writer he was known for emphasizing crucial historical events and giving a complete picture of individual characters, as well as the role of the arts in history.

This Serbian peasant (he came from Uskub, the much disputed railroad junction of the late war) had no use for "book-learn in." It was by his orders that the ancient Athenian school of philosophy was finally suppressed. And it was he who closed the doors of the only Egyptian temple that had continued to do business centuries after the valley of the Nile had been invaded by the monks of the new Christian faith. This temple stood on a little island called Philae, not far from the first great waterfall of the Nile. Ever since men could remember, the spot had been dedicated to the worship of Isis and for some curious reason, the Goddess had survived where all her African and Greek and Roman rivals had miserably perished. Until finally, in the sixth century, the island was the only spot where the old and most holy art of picture writing was still understood and where a small number of priests continued to practice a trade which had been forgotten in every other part of the land of Cheops.
