What is the level of resonance between Islam and the West? In A Dialogue of Civilizations, Jill Carroll explores the points where the ideas of Fethullah Gülen, an influential Turkish intellectual and scholar of Islam, find echo in the context of the larger humanities. Readers will gain a fuller understanding of Gülen's thought on issues of inherent human value and dignity, freedom of thought, education, and taking responsibility for creating society and the world. Dr. Carroll establishes a textual dialogue between the works of Gülen and the texts of Confucius, Plato, Immanuel Kant, John Stuart Mill, and Jean Paul Sartre. This book shows how perspectives from different times, locations, and worldviews can still find deep resonance and yield points on which to engage in dialogue. (Back cover).
