This volume attempts to define the concept of dialogue and to indicate basic sources - philosophical, theoretical, and practical - that can illuminate dialogue's potential, its limitations, and relevancy to communication theory. Essays highlight central questions and issues.
Readers of Dialogue will be able to frame different influential conceptions of dialogue, establish the concepts' history in communication studies, and trace both common and unique threads that connect different theorists. This volume is recommended for graduate and advanced undergraduate courses in Communication Theory, Interpersonal Communication, and Organizational Communication
This volume is about communication in mathematics classrooms. In a series of empirical studies of project work, it studies students' inquiry cooperation as well as students' obstructions to inquiry cooperation, and pays special attention to the notions of `dialogue', `critique', `intention', and `reflection'. Thus a theory of learning mathematics is developed which is resonant with critical mathematics education
This book brings together a diverse range of international voices from academia, policymaking and civil society to address the failure to connect historical dialogue with atrocity prevention discourse and provide insight into how conflict histories and historical memory act as dynamic forces, actively facilitating or deterring current and future conflict. Established on a variety of international case studies combining theoretical and practical points of view, the book envisions an integrated understanding of how historical dialogue can inform policy, education, and the practice of atrocity prevention. In doing so, it provides a vital basis for the development of preventive policies sensitive to the importance of conflict histories and for further academic study on the topic. It will be of interest to all scholars and students of history, psychology, peace studies, international relations and political science.
In the wake of World War II and the Holocaust, it seemed there was no place for German in Israel and no trace of Hebrew in Germany — the two languages and their cultures appeared as divergent as the directions of their scripts. Yet when placed side by side on opposing pages, German and Hebrew converge in the middle. Comprised of essays on literature, history, philosophy, and the visual and performing arts, this volume explores the mutual influence of two linguistic cultures long held as separate or even as diametrically opposed. From Moses Mendelssohn’s arrival in Berlin in 1748 to the recent wave of Israeli migration to Berlin, the essays gathered here shed new light on the painful yet productive relationship between modern German and Hebrew cultures.
