Dialogue in the Global World

From Ideologies to Persons

Edited by: Janez Juhant, Vojko Strahovnik

Since contemporary societies and cultures can be characterized by growing conflicts, loss of trust, globalized interdependence, the fragility of certain individual identities, and the prevalence of select collective identities, questions concerning dialogue are of crucial importance. From a philosophical, theological, anthropological, and sociological perspective, this book addresses the challenges and opportunities of dialogue in today's world. The book's contributions look into topics such as: intercultural and interreligious dialogue * the challenges for dialogue in post-communist societies in the context of modernity * the relationship between various philosophical and theological outlooks (Christian feminist theology, American pragmatism, Vattimo) and dialogue * the role of dialogue in a quest for universalism and global justice.
