In our, postmodern world the word `dialogue' is very common: we speak about the necessity of a dialogue among individuals, inside a family, between different religions, cultures, ethnic groups etc. Even if many people just (mis)use the word, but in fact they do not practice a dialogue where and when they should, the frequent use of it reflects the fact that a dialogue is a value which is indispensable for a good human life, and hence cannot be ignored in an ethical and political arguing. Because today almost all people experience diversities in this world, there is an urgent necessity to overcome the clashes they bring with. It is impossible to reach peace and stability through violence, neither (only) by tolerance; mutual understanding, empathy, respect and compassion are necessary for them. Dialogue is deeply rooted in human beings. It must be cultivated, with knowledge, prudence, wisdom and love.
