Book Launch Event - Dialogue Theories & The Muslim World and Politics in Transition

08 October 13

 

Dialogue Theories by Frances Sleap and Dr Omer Sener, edited by Prof Paul Weller, aims to advance theoretical and practical engagement with dialogue by introducing the work of ten individuals who have made important and insightful contributions to thought in this area.
The thinkers, deliberately drawn from diverse intellectual and cultural backgrounds, include quantum physicist David Bohm, Jewish philosopher, theologian and educationalist Martin Buber, social theorist Jurgen Habermas and Islamic scholar and peace advocate Fethullah Gulen.
The book is part of the Dialogue Society's ongoing project of researching, promoting and contributing to the theory and practice of dialogue. Together with the Journal of Dialogue Studies which will be launched this year, and the Dialogue Studies MA co-delivered with Keele University, it is also intended to contribute to the goal of the development of "Dialogue Studies" as a distinct academic field.
Also being launched the same evening is The Muslim World and Politics in Transition by Dr Ihsan Yilmaz and Prof Greg Barton, edited by Prof Paul Weller.
