Fostering Pluralism: Received Models under Scrutiny

This issue of ResetDOC (October 28 – November 18, 2013) holds three essays on the debate on viable models for the coexistence of diversity.

Authenticity of Cultures and of Persons, Beate Roessler, University of Amsterdam
The Emerging Domain of the Political, David M. Rasmussen, Boston College, USA
Modernity, citizenship and democracy. A case study: Rethinking the «Kurdish question» in Turkey, E. Fuat Keyman, Sabancı University, Istanbul

Beate Roessler’s article addresses the fundamental problem for intercultural relations of how to conceive that flourishing of a culture (and persons within a culture) which then specific legal provisions or administrative policies may enhance or stifle. David Rasmussen revisits the notion of the political, while Fuat Keyman addresses these issues with reference to the centrality of the ‘Kurdish Question’ for the consolidation of Turkish Democracy.
