    Session 4 on Monday, May 4: Pluralism and the Need to be Right

    In Fiddler on the Roof, Tevye famously solves an argument between two friends by saying "he's right... and he's also right." How can they both be right? At what point does a multi-faceted approach to truth become tolerance for falsity? While modernity rejects the singular claim to truth in favor of religious and cultural pluralism, it fails to answer how competing claims to truth can be upheld simultaneously. The talmud's very structure is built around the "seventy faces of Torah"-- documenting competing interpretations and arguments in search of a multi-faceted approach to truth, that nevertheless, points toward consensus.
