How does the Gülen Movement deal with new information and change in general?
With its participation in the fields of education, interfaith and intercultural issues, and transnational altruistic projects and institutions, the Gülen Movement proves itself able to process information and emergent realities. It acknowledges the fact that the common points, grounds, references and problems affecting humanity in general are far more than the differences which separate us. Fethullah Gülen teaches that “one can be for others while being oneself”, and “for peaceful coexistence, one can build oneself among others, in togetherness with others.” The difference and particularism of an actor do not negate interdependence and unity with others. People can come together and co-operate around a universally acknowledged set of values. The way to do so is through education, convincing argument, peaceful interaction and negotiation.
