Is a dialogue of Cultures between China and the West Possible?

In this discussion (on YouTube) between Hussein Askary and the Chairman of the Belt and Road Institute in Sweden (BRIX), Stephen Brawer, we explore the common grounds for a dialog of cultures between China and the West. We try to answer some questions such as:

  • Is there a basis for a “community of a shared future for mankind” or we should just be interested in pragmatic trade in goods and services?
  • What are the historic precedents for such a dialog?
  • Why earlier attempts failed?
  • Do the Chinese understand all the internal dynamics and nuances of Western history?
  • Why the work of Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz is so relevant now?
