Daisaku Ikeda and Value-Creative Dialogue: A new current in interculturalism and educational philosophy
Educational Philosophy and Theory 44 (9):997-1009 (2012)
|Abstract||This article focuses on Daisaku Ikeda's (1928– ) philosophy and practice of intercultural dialogue—what I call ‘value-creative dialogue’—as a new current in interculturalism and educational philosophy and theory. I use excerpts from Ikeda's writings to consider two aspects of his approach to dialogue. First, I locate his approach philosophically in Buddhism; in the examples of dialogue modeled by Ikeda's mentor, Josei Toda (1900–1958), and by Toda's mentor, Tsunesaburo Makiguchi (1871–1944); and in Makiguchi's theory of value creation (soka) and value-creating pedagogy. Second, I consider the multiple and value-creative levels Ikeda's dialogues play. I conclude with implications of value-creative dialogue in education in general and bilingual-bicultural education in particular|
