  Tolerance - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Tolerance is a social, cultural and religious term applied to the collective and individual practice of not persecuting those who may believe, behave or act in ways of which one may not approve.
Tolerance implies both the ability to punish and the conscious decision not to.
In the wider sociological sense, "tolerance" carries with it the understanding that "intolerance" and conformity breeds violence and social instability.

 Repressive Tolerance, by Herbert Marcuse (1965)   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
In other words, tolerance is an end in itself only when it is truly universal, practiced by the rulers as well as by the ruled, by the lords as well as by the peasants, by the sheriffs as well as by their victims.
The progressive historical force of tolerance lies in its extension to those modes and forms of dissent which are not committed to the status quo of society, and not confined to the institutional framework of the established society.
Tolerance would be restricted with respect to movements of a demonstrably aggressive or destructive character (destructive of the prospects for peace, justice, and freedom for all).

 Vitamin C Dosage in Disease
This increased bowel tolerance phenomenon serves not only to indicate the amount which should be taken but indicates the unsuspected and astonishing magnitude of the potential use that the body has for ascorbate under stressful conditions.
This increased tolerance is somewhat proportional to the toxicity of the disease being treated.
While it is true that tolerance doses of oral ascorbate will usually eliminate complications of acute viral diseases; at times, such as with certain cases of influenza, the large amount of oral ascorbate necessary to suppress symptoms over a period of a week or more, sometimes makes intravenous ascorbate desirable.

 [No title]
Tolerance is the appreciation of diversity and the ability to live and let others live.
Though tolerance may seem an impossible exercise in certain situations -- as illustrated by Hobbes in the introductory caption to this essay -- being tolerant nonetheless remains key to easing hostile tensions between groups and to helping communities move past intractable conflict.
To encourage tolerance, parties to a conflict and third parties must remind themselves and others that tolerating tolerance is preferable to tolerating intolerance.

 Timmons & Hamilton: Drugs, Brains & Behavior -- Ch
At a still more complicated level, behavioral tolerance may enter into the picture, with the organism learning or otherwise adapting to the effects of the drug, such that the behavior is normalized in spite of any prevailing physiological changes that the drug may produce.
The rats that had developed tolerance to the cholinesterase inhibitor were twice as resistant to the effects of carbachol, showing an average lethal dose of 4 mg/kg.
The answer (although it does not specify a mechanism) is behavioral tolerance: the rats in Group PRE became tolerant to the effects of amphetamine on milk consumption.

 The Rutherford Institute - Legal Features
Thirteen-year-old Robert Richardson was expelled for one semester after being accused of violating the school's zero tolerance policy forbidding possession of drugs or over-the-counter medications, "including diet aids." Richardson had expressed concern that his girlfriend was abusing a diet aid called "Fatburners" (a non-medicinal dietary supplement made of nuts, cinnamon, mustard seeds and grapefruit rind).
This was the seminal case that motivated The Rutherford Institute to research Zero Tolerance further and to launch a national effort to fight ZT policies.
Unfortunately, under the zero tolerance policies in place, the matter was reported to the school's resource officer who reported it to the Arlington Police.

 Tolerance
   Eventually this political program of religious toleration collapsed with the new Enlightenment ideas of the individual or subject, which posited that every individual was separate and distinct from others, and of rights, or principles of autonomy.
These ideas encouraged Enlightenment thinkers to revamp the notion of religious tolerance into a general social and political virtue; tolerance of variant religions should be extended to variant ideas (hence freedom of speech), variant philosophies, and variant cultures.
Tolerance, I should stress, did not mean "acceptance" to the Enlightenment, it only meant that one would take no steps to coerce physically or otherwise other individuals into changing their beliefs, thoughts, or customs.

 Software Fault Tolerance   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
Software fault tolerance is the ability for software to detect and recover from a fault that is happening or has already happened in either the software or hardware in the system in which the software is running in order to provide service in accordance with the specification.
Software fault tolerance is not a solution unto itself however, and it is important to realize that software fault tolerance is just one piece necessary to create the next generation of systems.
Randell argues that the difference between fault tolerance versus exception handling is that exception handling deviates from the specification and fault tolerance attempts to provide services compliant with the specification after detecting a fault.

 Immunological Tolerance
Immunological tolerance is the failure to mount an immune response to an antigen.
Immunological tolerance is not simply a failure to recognize an antigen; it is an active response to a particular epitope and is just as specific as an immune response.
Both B cells and T cells can be made tolerant, but it is more important to tolerize T cells than B cells because B cells cannot make antibodies to most antigens without the help of T cells.

 "Tolerance" | Just a Gwai Lo   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
Tolerating something, as Jay suggests, means that we think something is abnormal and wrong but either we don't have the energy to oppose it or there are forces constraining us from opposing it.
There are things I tolerate amongst my friends—like certain people's behaviour towards people other than me, something I don't have the right to be upset about in the first place—because bringing up the subject comes at the cost of the friendship.
