The paper deals with one of the basic concepts of the classical ethical conception of French moral philosopher Vladimir Jankelevitch (1903 - 1985). Although tolerance is one of the so called little virtues', it is not less important; it has its own philosophy based on two presuppositions: 1) we have to abandon the knowledge of the thing in itself; 2) we have to conceive of every person as a purpose itself, 'an imperium within an imperium'. The symbiosis of body and mind, this 'living paradox', can serve as a model of how to resolve an irresolvable problem of tolerance. In the same way the 'paradox' of a community of people sharing common faith and forced by it to act together could be brought to existence (given their self-understanding and the understanding of the shared). And if convivial moments and moments of enthusiasms are affiliated, maybe one day they will start to love one another.
