I argue that it is through an integrative dialogue based on the Ijing (Book of Chang-es) model of cooperative and cyclical change rather than a Marxist or neo-Marxist dia-lectical model of change based upon the Hegelian model of conflict and replacement that promises the greatest possibility of peaceful coexistence.1 As a case study of a dia-logue between civilizations, I utilize both a mythical and an historical encounter betwe-en Martin Buber, representing the West, and Zhuangzi, representing the East. I show that despite the vast temporal, historic, linguistic and cultural differences, that the dialo-gue between Zhuangzi and Buber is complementary and not adversarial.
