Description
Summary:The term `dialogue' is increasingly and often unreflectively used in interreligious contexts. This article aims to explore the quality of consciousness or `intentionality' involved, first from a Christian point of view, and then in connection with the religious `other.' These reflections aim thereby to contribute an often missing element to the theology of dialogue, and so to elaborate it more effectively as an activity of faith, hope, and love. Accordingly, after presenting a brief phenomenology of dialogue, we move to the Christian context and then to its anthropological foundation in self-transcendence.
