What does "Dialogue" mean to you?
Dialogue means readiness to subvert my own paradigms through openness to understanding other people’s thinking, especially their method of reasoning. My arguments can be fully shaped by letting them be exposed to outside forces. It means desire to be contaminated when you recognize intellectual honesty.
What is your tweet from La Pietra?
Another great conference on human rights at NYU Firenze in the portfolio of the great LPD forum where you can get contaminated by ideas.
