Dear Mostafa Younesie:

I agree completely to your statement in favour of dialogical rationality in (global) ethical concerns. Now, in my opinion, one of the most difficult problems to resolve in an intercultural dialogue seems to be the problem of representivity; or shorter: Who speaks? And who speaks for whom? I think it's obvious that in an ethical and/or political discussion on global justice not all the persons concerned (i.e. humanity) can take part in the respective dialogue.

So I would be very interested in hearing your opinion about that question. Do you have any idea how to face the problem? For example: How can representives be elected? What are the criteria for representivity? How can we manage not to exclude differences, minorities, particular interests etc.?
Or maybe we can simply ask: How can we establish a "just dialogue on justice"?

I look forward to hearing from you.

Kind regards,
Bertold Bernreuter
