Theme of the fourth edition

“Science Dialogue: Towards a Civilized Framework for Knowledge Integration”

1-   Background

The value of social and human science has decline in second half of the 20th century. This decline affected the core of education in most civilizations, natural science and its standards curricula dominated the education’s scene, and source that brought the fields of knowledge together was deteriorated and divided into many culture or three mind where each culture or mind is completely different from each other. Social and human science and its different branches suffered more than any other science and its researchers experienced more difficulty, because they were out of economic, trade and development calculation, in addition to media’s focus on making general opinion to those convictions.

This situation of fragmentation, division and separation that social and human science experienced, was result of centralized and isolated system that does not look forward to the future of knowledge, nor unity of its kinds.

Knowledge is consist of separated and united group, each of them is bigger its total and that way both of them need other to other to achieve thematic understanding and a comprehensive vision  of the thing, whether in thing itself or in its realty. Perhaps the contradiction that each party use to justify the disconnection represented in the eligibility and priority of each field. The normal researchers were highly considered that other sciences or other educational cultures (human and social), are not applied to notion of science and its characteristic, and  they used  it as field of make prose that only good for moving feelings and promoting emotions. It is hard to define in scientific term, because that require the need of finding correct facts far from ambiguity of self-moral rules and definitions. Other perspectives such the different problems related to research notions, standards and curricula, beside the loss of confidence in the effeteness of social and human sciences in solving the problem of humankind, especially after the appearance of new scientific branches, came sciences such biology and psychology beside the problem of contributions that human and social sciences provided in development. All of these things were a negative impact to the education system in many countries across the world, and created a condition of clear contradiction between fields of knowledge and education curricula.

The past three decades, circumstances were fair in helping  the social and human sciences to find a place in the middle of strong competition among countries in all fields of civilizations, therefore, some of the great philosophers of science were interested in oriental studies,  started to predict  the possibility of entering into a new era of history that achieves the integration of knowledge and overcome the  applicable modern pattern that been used since centuries to study the relation of  between the existence  and mankind . After that, the angle of dealing with the facts was determined by using experimental mind separate from all other manifestations of nature. That integration and communication that was existed in the Islamic heritage and in the original education curricula as well as in the curricula of Islamic Jurisprudence (Sharia), literature, history, sociology, medicine, chemistry and physics, and brought rich scientific heritage to  Islamic civilization which  formed the foundations for an integrated consistent knowledge  founded the intellectual structure that forms the identity of society, and revised what was presented by the Greek, Chinese and Indian cultures, and added it  the  philosophy of the self, as well as methodologies of using  measurement and study.

To correct the course of the relationship  among the fields of knowledge in the context of the development of civilized dialogue and its elevation to local and international institutional action, care has been given to the field of education by allocating it as the most prominent approved field of work, whether in the national plans of countries,  or in the academic and educational programs, or in the general plan of the High Commissioner for the Alliance of Civilizations, which oversees the file of the Dialogue Among Civilizations in the United Nations in coordination with the Member States involved in this path. A new vision was proposed in educational systems and in the field of programmes, curricula and research, accompanied by an effective strategy to correct the relationship between knowledge and science and to overcome the disconnect that was nothing more than a result of psychological reasons linked to environmental, ideological and cultural backgrounds rather than being a result of objective reasons. This strategy is based on two tracks, the first: practical, based on the inclusion of civilizational dialogue in the field of knowledge and science, since the establishment of dialogue between states, nations, religions and civilizations starts from the dialogue of sciences and knowledge and overcoming bias, centralism and epistemological disconnect. The second: theoretical, based on the need to take into account the terminological lexicon specific to each knowledge and scientific field in the educational curricula, so that the concepts do not overlap and do not conflict with the definitions of the major basic hypotheses that are researched by using the three fields (natural, social, human) in their epistemological  dimension, and record all the achievements and findings that each field of knowledge has offered to humanity.

2-   The questions where theme of fourth edition looking to answer :

–          What is the nature of the relationship between sciences, and knowledge?  What are the foundations on which this relationship is based on, and what is its explanations?

–          How does the course of civilizational dialogue and its development affect the field of communication and integration among the fields of knowledge?

–          How did educational systems through local and international institutions deal with the problem of disconnect between the fields of knowledge and the problem of integration and unity?

–          How did the system of Islamic legal sciences contribute to the connection of the system of sciences and confirm the idea of integration?

–          What practical means, methods and initiatives that can be innovated and used to   achieve a realistic integration knowledge, within   outcomes to meet the quality   in education, research and education in the context of dialogue among civilizations?

3-   Objectives of the fourth edition:

–          To activate the first area of the national and international plans for dialogue and alliance of civilizations, which is the field of education, in the context of the dialogue of sciences and the celebration of all knowledge without exception.

–          To explore in practical the aspects of the relationship between science and knowledge and ways of activating the idea of integration knowledge in educational curricula.

–          To address the challenges related to the disconnect between knowledge and conflict, preventing epistemological biases through non-naturalization and centralization of knowledge, and searching for a common civilized framework for education and scientific research.

–          To encourage innovative ideas and initiatives to achieve quality in education through interdisciplinary convergence by bringing together the natural, social and human disciplines, and finding appropriate curricula and tools to embody the integration system of the knowledge.

–          To highlight the role of Islamic sciences historically in embodying the communication of knowledge and the service of science to each other.

4-   Areas of the fourth edition:

First area: Intellectual and cultural premises of the idea of sciences’ dialogue and knowledge integration. The need to clarify the civilizational framework in which the idea of sciences’ dialogue and knowledge integration has evolved and their connectivity and separation throughout history, by disclosing the governing values of the knowledge movement, the relations of its fields and cultural premises.

Second area: The conceptual dimensions of the terminology of sciences’ dialogue (integration, interface, bridging, communication, unity…), and the extent of their objectivity and realism: The idea of science communication and knowledge integration needs to sort the glossary of terminology, adjust concepts and rebuild problems and hypotheses that control the scientific formation of general research perception away from subjective judgments and ideology.

Third area : The nature of the modern educational system that apprehends the dialogue of knowledge and sciences and their integration: The process of building scientific disciplines in modern educational systems is subject to the nature of these systems and their intellectual, political and civilizational backgrounds on the one hand, and the goals and outputs related to the development that each system wants on the other hand, and therefore the integration of the knowledge system would be influenced by that.

Forth  area : Challenges of embodying the educational system integration in the academic curricula, and in learning and education: (subjective – cultural – social challenges): Various challenges arise in a materialistic globalized context, which educational systems face to achieve knowledge integration in educational and learning curricula, between natural sciences on the one hand and the social and human sciences on the other, and their reflection on the education and upbringing of generations.

Fifth area : Role of the Islamic system in Achieving communication between various sciences and knowledge; theoretical premises, scientific approaches and political means: Human civilization today owes much to Islamic civilization in the matter of knowledge integration and correcting the organic and realistic relationship between different sciences, through the foundational premises in viewing the world or in the practical aspects embodied in the human and experimental rights in which Muslims excelled.

Sixth area : Modern learning and educational models, effective in reflecting the integration of knowledge and sciences in the context of national and international work of civilizational dialogue institutions: In modern history, we have witnessed continuous attempts by national and international institutions; educational, administrative, political and economic, to advance the reality of integration between scientific disciplines and communication between knowledge and bridge the gap between them, through curricula and initiatives with theoretical and practical impact, to serve civilization in its various dimensions.
