1 Review
Dialogue Among Civilizations explores the social, cultural, and philosophical underpinnings of "civilizational dialogue" by asking questions like these: What is the meaning of such dialogue? What are its preconditions? Are there different trajectories for different civilizations? Is there also a dialogue between past and future involving remembrance? Exemplary voices range from Ibn Rushd, Goethe and Hafiz to Soroush, Gadamer, and the Mahatma Gandhi.
