Dialogo Journal is an International, open access, peer reviewed, online journal. The journal welcomes the submission of manuscripts that meet the general criteria of significance and scientific preeminence in all areas of any discussions between science and theology. Focus and Scope: © RCDST (Research Center on the Dialogue between Science & Theology) - the Editor, Ovidius University of Constanta. Romania in association and partnership with academic institutions and research centers from Slovakia - Pakistan - Switzerland - Poland - India - Egypt - Uganda - Jordan - Turkey - Argentina - USA - Canada - Germany has developed this multidisciplinary forum of dialogue between every scientific domain and any theology in an effort to provide a way for leading scholars to share and exchange their views, as well as to comment on the opinions of their peers regarding particular aspects of science and religion. Not limited by ideological orientation, the Journal embraces all areas of theology (biblical, historical, ethical, constructive, doctrinal, etc.) as well as any types of scientific studies (literary, social, psychology, philosophy, astrophysics, evolutionary biology, physics, chemistry, anthropology, biology, genetics, anatomy, neurology, and other science) for a live dialogue, putting together not only their theories, but the minds working with them every day. This might include ways to challenge the boundaries within and between religion and science, and or between and within the academy, as well as the boundaries of the sacred and secular, of reason and faith. Ultimately, we want to ask how queer religion, science and philosophy, can and/or should be.


The Globethics library contains articles of Dialogo as of vol. 1(2014) to current.

  • Systemic approach of the evolution in the history and unexplained gaps within.

    Nuțu, Cătălin Silviu (Dialogo Publishing House, 2018-11-30)
    The paper is presenting the main stages in the history of mankind using the concept of system and how a certain system of a certain stage is evolving out of the previous stage into another new one using also the mathematical theory pertaining to the transition of a system between two different states. The paper is also dealing with the rational laws and rules governing the economy, laws and rules that are necessary to explain evolution. One important fact which is resulting out of the paper is that although necessary those economical rules and laws are unfortunately insufficient to explain the gaps one can always find everywhere one looks in the history.
  • Religion, science and theology, similarity and differences

    Marchal, Bruno (Dialogo Publishing House, 2018-11-30)
    In this short paper I explain why the discovery of the universal machine is a major discovery, totally unexpected, and quite extraordinary. I will explain, as much as possible in layman terms, what meant “theology” in the general sense of the Greeks who invented the theological science, and I will explain why the universal machine has a canonical theology in that sense. Some knowledge of the notion of functions is required. I do not claim any ontological truth. I will make my hypothesis, Mechanism, clear, and all statements that I will assert must be understood as belonging to the consequences of the hypothesis. The hypothesis itself cannot be proved but can be refuted, and so it will appear to be scientific in that sense. I will compare it to the human theologies, but also to human religion, and try to find an explanation of why religions, which are supposed to be “good thing” can sometimes look so bad. Unlike some of my previous paper, I will abandon a bit of rigor for reason of length, clarity, and ease, but everyone is invited to consult my other publications for more rigorous exposition of the basic theory. Any critics or comments are encouraged, cela va de soi! I use the hypothesis of Mechanism, not because I would believe in it, but because it makes possible to translate the problems into mathematical problems and to test the consequences empirically. Nevertheless, I begin to expose the basic theory of computability, so that the reader gets the taste of the “real thing,” before providing a sort of panorama of the machine’s theology, before a loose and succinct application in the human domain.

  • Beyond the low-cost strategies in Indonesia of the AirAsia company.

    Sugiarto, Teguh; Iskak, Jamaludin (Dialogo Publishing House, 2018-11-30)
    To deal with competition, corporations must develop appropriate and efficient strategies to ensure that in the long run the company can still survive and grow. Strategy becomes a part that must be prepared as early as possible and implemented in such a way as to ensure the continuity of corporations or companies. The strategy is not something that is formulated simply because it is asked, then never evaluated whether it is effective or not. Instead, strategies are structured to ensure that the organization can run in a predefined design.

  • Romanian activists from Transylvania in the period of Austro-Hungarian dualism

    Oprea, Emanuel (Dialogo Publishing House, 2018-11-30)
    After the war with France (1859) and Prussia (1866) the Habsburg Empire was in a deep social and political crisis, very close to its dissolution, mainly due to the internal national movements in the name of new ideas and principles of Democracy and National Emancipation as they were first mentioned in the decade of French Revolution (1789-1799). In consequence, the Habsburgs have made serious efforts to maintain the unity and cohesion of the multinational state and from 1860 to 1867 enlarged rights including autonomy and self-government in many regions of the Empire were accorded. The Romanian intellectuals and elite from Transylvania have intensified their actions for the social, political and economic emancipation of Romanian ethnics with a general defined purpose to obtain equal rights with Hungarian and Austrian citizens in the spirit of the ideas of democracy and the national principles. The end of the bipolar world in 1990 had brought in actuality the national and ethnical issues. The insufficient and superficial approach of these questions, based on the particular examples of Romanians from Transylvania, leads to deep fundamental state crisis and therefore they represent a serious challenge nowadays and their investigations are relevant and of interest.

  • Meditative practice as a tool in philosophical counseling

    Hațegan, Vasile Petru (Dialogo Publishing House, 2018-11-30)
    This paper presents the necessity of implementing meditative practice as a necessary tool in philosophical counseling. It starts from the fact that it is one of the tools used by philosophy in antiquity. It was subsequently forgotten by philosophers oriented towards the academy, but also because meditation was taken over by theology, and later by psychotherapy and by personal development. The emergency of philosophical counseling led to the rediscovery of these practices by some practitioners concerned with the applications of philosophical meditation and the use of philosophical texts in the meditative process, drawing up manuals for practitioners in philosophy. The paper includes the description of a method of inducing a meditative state, necessary for meditation and philosophical reflection. There are presented tools and mental processes that can be used in philosophical practice at different times and can be included in meditation to clarify or understand life situations. The conclusion of this article is in favor of developing of these meditative methods and techniques by including them in the philosophical counselor’s professional training programs, showing some directions to be followed in future in this field.

    Religion has always been an important element in the lives of most people. The couple represents the basic unit of life perpetuation. It is a bond formed between two people who develops and evolves together and which have as a common goal building a family. The couple’s life quality is essential in maintaining a lasting, healthy relationship that provides harmony, satisfaction and stability. The way a partner relates to each other in the couple relationship has a determining role for the future actions of the other, and also for the relationship stability and functioning. The manner in which partners in a couple behave depends on their religious culture. Religion must bring a positive influence on the relationship: namely, the cultivation of the idea of not harming the person and the person next to us. Prayer is a method of stress relief in critical moments. The effort regarding maintain positive and functional relationship between partners should be oriented towards the following directions: interpersonal communication based on affectivity, equality in decision-making, fairness in exchanges, motivation that supports the relationship, motivational compatibility, interpersonal respect, raising the marital level satisfaction.

  • The impact of the image of God in the concept of the Protestants from Romania upon the mental health

    Balla, Annamaria (Dialogo Publishing House, 2018-11-30)
    In the cognitive psychology’s conception, mental health is mostly given by the way an individual relates to himself, those around him, the environment and the events occurring in his personal life, as well as in his family and community life. Religious life is an essential part for most of Romania’s population. So, the question appears: are there any patterns in a religious person’s thinking that could generate emotional and/or behavioral disorders, which could favor the appearance of some mental issues? This study wishes to point out the answer to this question, by analyzing the Protestant population of Romania. After data processing on 966 participants to the study the conclusion that came up was that in general there aren’t irrational thoughts regarding personal faith, the attitude towards God and the man’s role in relation with divinity. In a small extent, statistically not significant, there are people who believe God has an obligation to heal and listen to prayers, but the majority regards that God has no obligations towards the man.
  • The influence of religios sentiment and positive thinking on life quality

    Călin, Mariana Floricica (Dialogo Publishing House, 2018-11-30)

  • Situational lies. Developing liar behavior in school

    Sandu, Mihaela Luminita; Ispas, Kristine Viorica (Dialogo Publishing House, 2018-11-30)
    Of the most frequent negative traits in children, preadolescents and adolescents, psychological and educational research has mainly studied the lie, whims, stubbornness, negativity, shyness and so forth, highlighting their causes and ways of combating them. Over time, the advances in science and technology have been viewed with skepticism, and the inventors have had to overcome different obstacles to impose their ideas. The discovery of the lie has haunted people since ancient times and motivated them in their research to develop an apparatus to help to discover simulated behavior. Lying is an aspect of communication less investigated, but this phenomenon should not be ignored as long as it exists, and we do not find it only at adults, but also at the children. The negative character traits behind the lie are the effect of wrong education in the family, kindergarten, school, because the lie arises for a variety of reasons, some with conscious intention, others without conscious intention. Lying means, by definition, deceiving, but not all forms of deception mean lies; the language of lies is often complicated and confusing, depending on the nature of the subject itself. From a religious point of view, sincerity or veracity is a virtue, a virtue that consists in acting and speaking according to what we are thinking, avoiding lying and duplicity, because falsifying the truth makes the inter-human interaction in society disruptive as it destroys mutual trust among people and conducts to the removal of others and of God.
  • The influence of the entourage on the couple relationship.

    Sandu, Mihaela Luminita (Dialogo Publishing House, 2018-11-30)
    Living together is an art not so easy to manage. With a firm desire to overcome and a right attitude, the relationships in two can work well and it can be a safe form of achieving a balanced and happy personal development. In most cases, the causes of problems in a couple have their origin outside the relationship, such as the intervention of friends or the family intervening in the relationship between the two partners. Many other reasons lie within it. If there is communication in the relationship and is built on love, surely the two partners can overcome certain obstacles and can solve the problems between them. Currently there are psychologists who can advise the couple relationship. But most of the time, you are your advisor when it comes to your couple problems. As far as your couple issues are concerned, it depends a lot how close your relationship is with your friends, work colleagues, parents and how much their word influences you, and most important is how far you are willing to go. More and more people talk about the lack of communication within the couple, however, it is not the main cause of the couple’s problems. Some partners do not communicate or miscommunicate in some cases, and it creates issues or strengthens the couple.
  • Transylvania : Orthodox and Catholic confluences

    Oprea, Emanuel George (Dialogo Publishing House, 2019-06-30)
    Separation of Christianity, the Great Schism of 1054, as a result of the struggle for power between Rome and Constantinople, in Orthodox and Catholic, can be considered the moment when Europe was split up for many years until our days. The Western Europe Church expansion had manifested itself in the Middle Age in Transylvania when after 1437 the Unio Trium Nationum had excluded the Romanian Orthodox from social, political and economic life. The separation of Christian religions between East and West led to severe consequences reflected in the development of the society in Transylvania, which propagated even until present days.
  • Total daily life philosophy (Tdlp ): new conceptual and fundamentals

    Alkhatib, Ahed J; Latyshev, Oleg Ju. (Dialogo Publishing House, 2019-06-30)
    In this study, we introduce our perspectives about total daily life philosophy (TDLP). From a daily point of view, we experience events and episodes continuously, particularly the heavily aspects of information as received by electronic media. To cope with this massive stream of information and their data analysis, one needs to develop a philosophical mentality, and one aspect of philosophy is not sufficient. According to this context, the concept of TDLP has emerged. Philosophy may be the representative expressions of mental activities that cannot be placed in one frame. We need philosophy to be placed in a comprehensive and practical context for two purposes, to treat effectively the emerging experiences, and to expand the horizon of previous experiences and episodes. The second purpose is to make philosophy approaching the larger audience. The term TDLP has come to represent all elements in the previous context.
