We are in a world struggling with globalizing-localizing and exclusivism-pluralism tensionsWe assume that dialogical relationships – between and within individuals and within and between science, philosophy, religion, and art – are today at the heart of living together successfully. These challenges have led to the establishment of this institute with the aim of facilitating communication among those interested in advancing the following dialogical goals:

Facilitating dialogical knowledge of the self and the other

Facilitating peace and inter-communal social development

Nurturing dialogue among those who are committed to dialogue

Creating innovative methods to promote dialogue both within and between individuals, and in Science, Philosophy, and Art

Transforming the will-to-power into the will-to-cooperation

Transforming the violent mastering of the other by a self into the disciplined flourishing of the self and others within a dialogical community 

Promoting mental health through dialogical approaches
