Summary/Abstract: Tolerance as an art does not imply the ability to do something, but exactly the opposite – to not do something, for example, abstinence from the jamming of foreign opinion, with which we are not agree. Its history shows us many techniques for tolerance, but little principles which justify those techniques. From this position the tolerance can be defined as art we to not cause suffering to those who can not to love despite their differences, and why we tolerate them. Therefore, a major problem in relation to tolerance is no justification of its necessity or utility, because it is inevitable. The problem is that tolerance is a valuable only when it is not infinite. In this context, tolerance as art consists in defining of limits for tolerance and in that we not to pass these limits in practice.
