'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.
