Abstract
This thesis examines the Thoughts of Buber, Augustine, and Ibn Khaldun on resolving interreligious tensions. It demonstrates their common ground in articulating morality as the basis for peace. This morality comes out of love of God, requires respect for all human beings, and has the potential to motivate humans to act cooperatively and justly from a place other than that dominated by unjust, greed, and violence. This present study of their works indicates that such a morality, one that reflects love between people as strong as the love between a human and God as developed and articulated in these theological writings, is a precondition for communication in social and political systems. These thinkers therefore posit morality based on others’ humanity as a departure point for successful dialogue and just law for humans around the world.
