Us and Them: Religious Education and the Role of Proper Communication in Conflict Prevention
Massoudi, Mehrdad
Interchange: A Quarterly Review of Education, v41 n3 p285-304 Jul 2010
The importance of proper language, in the context of multicultural education, and how it can be of help in conflict prevention is discussed. A brief discussion of what a model does and how a scientific model is constructed is provided. A circular model is developed where it is proposed that thought, language, and action, as the three most important fields of human activity, are mutually affecting each other. The element of right (proper) speech in Buddhism is extended to include right writing, or in short, right communication.
