  1. The question of freedom in doping: A moral approach.Sofianna Alifieri - 2023 - Dialogo 9 (2):35-44.
    In this paper, two questions are been put forward: whether doping falls within the athlete's freedom to do what they can to enhance their performance and whether or not is necessary an establishment of limits on the scientific research concerning these substances. Following this line of thought, two aspects of freedom are raised: the freedom of the athlete, and the freedom of the scientist. These two aspects are discussed within a moral framework, in particular that of moral relativism. For the (...)

    Religious and Spiritual assistance of people in palliative care. Practical Assessment.Tudor-Cosmin Ciocan - 2023 - Dialogo 9 (2):138-152.
    The primary purpose of this study is to understand if/how patients of hospice healthcare require ‘Spiritual’ or/and ‘Religious’ assistance and if its involvement in palliative care helps greatly. We have built a correlative of two scales and administrated them on the same sample, along with complete demographics questions to a group of people under palliative care and several people directly connected with patients, relatives- families. This methodological study is designed to assess the reliability and validity of two scales simultaneously for (...)

    The role of Religious and Spiritual assistance to people in palliative care. Theoretical overview.Tudor-Cosmin Ciocan - 2023 - Dialogo 9 (2):153-163.
    This is a follow-up to the practical research on hospice healthcare patients that proved they need either ‘Spiritual’ or/and ‘Religious’ assistance and that these needs are basic, natural, and almost standard. Since that research with direct involvement in palliative care greatly helps the multidisciplinary team develop an improved intervention plan, I thought additional explanations are necessary. In this regard, I have written this article to further interpret my observations on palliative care over the last couple of years. To conclude most (...)

    A Paradigm Shift in Public Health: Yoga and Meditation for Prevention.Mihaela Dragomir - 2023 - Dialogo 9 (2):112-121.
    In all its paradigms, the ideal modern public health systems should have eradicated by now the spreading of the most fatal diseases, like cancer or cardiovascular disorders. Not only it has not, but these diseases are actually growing, showing the limits of the modern public health and the need of a paradigm shift. Using a narrative review, this paper aims to emphasize the limits of curative modern medicine and the benefits of yoga and meditation practices as prevention for the most (...)

    Global consciousness and cosmic significance of lines from Wordsworth’s poem Tintern Abbey.Stephen David Edwards - 2023 - Dialogo 9 (2):122-129.
    Mystical, panentheistic lines from Wordsworth’s poem, Tintern Abbey, constitute inductive case study material to introduce HeartMath science’s Global Consciousness Project (GCP). This case study provides a temporal dimension along which to view the cosmic significance of Wordsworth’s “felt sense”, Teilhard de Chardin’s “noosphere” and the GCP. A heuristic phenomenological method is employed. This method facilitates discussion of previous South African research with traditional healers that led to collaboration with the HeartMath Institute, based in California, and establishment of an African Global (...)

    Contemplation and Transmission of Love via the HeartMath Global Coherence Application.Stephen David Edwards - 2023 - Dialogo 9 (2):103-111.
    The great wisdom traditions typically emphasize various forms of love, especially cosmic, agape type love. The African value of Ubuntu implies essential humanity, developed through the ongoing evolutionary event of humanization, socialization, enculturation, and communal spirituality. In addition to cosmic love and everyday caring practices, Ubuntu includes human essentials such as compassion, empathy, and respect. This contribution adopts a narrative approach. The authors tell a story of their involvement in the HeartMath system, with special reference to HeartMath related research before (...)

    Human Rights: Evolution And Devolution.Richard A. Honeycutt - 2023 - Dialogo 9 (2):71-79.
    The concept of human rights is over three millennia old. The oldest document listed three specific rights: physical liberty, shelter, and life. By the present time, many more have been added through various countries’ legal systems and important historical documents. Probably the most comprehensive such document is the United Nations’ Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Although not all-inclusive in terms of incorporating all the human rights proposed by previous documents, the broad acceptance of the Declaration as a model for human (...)

    This paper aims to problematize the scientific discourse in the field of humanities in the context of the fundamental changes that have taken place in the life, roles, and the socioeconomic and cultural impact of universities. The premise that drives the present research is the stringent need for conceptual and applied innovation to have an ethical dimension, to be supported by values such as responsibility and truth. The aim of this study is two-fold. First, it investigates two subgenres of scientific (...)

    Modern-Day Globalization: its Murky Underpinnings and its Even More Unsavory Future.Tina Lindhard - 2023 - Dialogo 9 (2):167-178.
    By spelling out the link between Transhumanism, the 4th Industrial Revolution, and globalism, which together form the economic thrust of mankind’s projected future, this paper invites a rethink about the direction envisaged by modern-day society. The underlying linking factor of these enterprises is the Humanist movement that, like Transhumanism, shares a Utopian view of the world and supplies the relative ethical underpinning for these ‘so-called’ new advances. Three Manifestos lay out the objectives of the Humanist Association, describing it as a (...)

    Universal Human Values and Religious Beliefs in a Globalizing World.Osman Murat Deniz - 2023 - Dialogo 9 (2):91-99.
    In a globalizing world, the interaction between universal human values and religious beliefs becomes an important topic of discussion. While there can be overlap between universal human values and religious teachings, there are also instances where they may diverge or even conflict. In today’s world, where people from diverse cultures and religious backgrounds interact more frequently, the challenge lies in finding common ground and fostering mutual respect and understanding. The reinterpretation of religious teachings within human rights frameworks may provide a (...)

    Covid-19 Aftermath for Educational System in Europe. The positives.Filip Nalaskowski - 2023 - Dialogo 9 (2):59-67.
    The COVID-19 pandemic has presented severe challenges for European education, forcing an adjustment to distance learning and physical school closures. Many students have encountered problems with online learning, such as a lack of access to appropriate equipment and tools. Nevertheless, the pandemic has also been an opportunity to improve the education system and introduce new, more effective solutions. These changes concern not only the material side of learning but also the psychological one. The introduction of remote learning meant the need (...)

They are members of a musical group named the Kendeng Squad and use songs to express their concern for environmental injustice. The group is also called an interreligious ecotheological movement because its members come from various religious backgrounds, namely, (...)

  16. Interfaith Dialogue Reflected in The Irish Times. A Defence of Romanian Immigrants in Ireland.Nicoleta Stanca - 2023 - Dialogo 9 (2):179-186.
    This article draws the portrayal of the church support for Romanians as depicted in articles from the most important Irish newspaper, The Irish Times (1992-2020). The articles analyzed show: the help of the Church of Ireland for the Romanian people in the aftermath of the 1989 fall of the communist regime; the interest that the Irish society showed for the Orthodox Church in the context of an increase in the number of immigrants from Romania, a predominantly Orthodox country; the efforts (...)

    A Historical Significance of Ancient Migration in Psalms.Paul Tseng - 2023 - Dialogo 9 (2):189-197.
    I apply Gadamer’s view of historicity to undergo a theological understanding of the historical significance of ancient migration in Psalms, which narrates Israelites’ history, including creation, the patriarchs, Egyptian bondage, Sinai, the wilderness, conquest, life in the land, and the exile and return. Gadamer’s concept of history composed of universal history, the concept of power, and the concept of Spirit are applied to explain the historical significance of Psalms. In terms of Christianity, which appears to be the centerpiece of the (...)
