Religion as Paradigm
The paper considers some aspects of rival beliefs in religion as against rival beliefs in science. This can easily account for why tolerance is far more characteristic of science, but leaves some question about the extreme zeal that has often marked religious rivalry. One essential aspect seems to be the link between religion and morality, so that the choice of religion comes to be seen as a choice between good and evil. In turn, that is best understood as reflecting (perversely here) innate social propensities of human beings, which ties the discussion to broader concerns of institutional economics.
