The distinguished guests of the dialogue, professor Seyyed Hossain Nasr from George Washington University, and professor Du Weiming from Harvard University also dean of the Institute of Advanced Studies in Humanities (PKU), will be conducting a full on discussion and exchange views on the crisis of traditional culture and values in the era of globalization and the consequent problems concerning economy, politics, ethics, environment and religion.
