Teaching Elementary School Students Tolerance in Pluralistic Society: Indonesian case
Julia Suleeman (Faculty of Psychology Universitas Indonesia)

Research Interest Group. [Paper] This paper is about the curriculum of character development for elementary school students in one Christian school in Klaten, Central Java province of Indonesia. The students learn about the importance of living in a pluralistic society and applying tolerance toward anyone, regardless of their religion and ethnic. To serve this purpose, a general theme of love was chosen that was reflected in loving God, loving oneself, loving others, and loving the enviroment. From here, nine characters were chosen and used to be developed in each grade.

A Dialogical Cultural Approach to the Controversy between Israeli Traditionalists and Liberals
Marc Silverman (Hebrew University)

Research Interest Group. [Paper] Israel’s traditionalists’ claim: Israeli Jews are not ‘Jewish enough’, and Israel’s liberals’ claim: The former are ‘too Jewish’ comprise one of Israel's most divisive issues. A constructivist analysis of their cultural assumptions discloses they hold inflated cultural self-images and devalue each other’s culture. Using a dialogical-cultural paradigm, the paper proposes that traditionalists respect the liberals’ search for human fullness in Jewish political nationalism, and that liberals respect the traditionalists' sense of the decisive importance of historical memory in human culture.

Keywords: consciousness., dialogical discourse;, dialogue, essentialism;, hope, jiddu krishnamurti, monologist discourse;, multiculturalism;, paul, pedagogy, philosophy, seneca, serviceable other, social constructivism;, unconditioned mind.
