Dialogue School Session 6: Selected Dialogue Theories
With Frances Sleap and Omer Sener, the Dialogue Society
The students learned about the theories of three significant thinkers on dialogue: Jewish philosopher and theologian Martin Buber, physicist, philosopher and dialogue practitioner David Bohm, and social scientist Daniel Yankelovich. They engaged in discussion of the relevance of these three thinkers to their own work as dialogue practitioners.
