De Faculteit der Filosofie, Theologie en Religiewetenschappen van de Radboud Universiteit in Nijmegen is op zoek naar een Professor by special appointment of Dialogical Self Theory voor 8 uur per week.

We are looking forThe professorship in Dialogical Self Theory (DST) has been established by the Foundation of the International Society for Dialogical Science. This foundation was set up in 2002 at Radboud University Nijmegen with the aim of developing DST further and bringing scholars, scientists and professions working with this theory in contact with one another. The theory itself was developed in the 1990s at this university by Professor Hubert Hermans, nowadays Emeritus Professor of Personality Psychology. In the meantime, DST is being taught and used in more than 45 countries. 

DST is an important conceptual model that is being used in a variety of social and humanistic disciplines, including psychology, pedagogy, management science, cultural anthropology, sociology, theology, philosophy and religious studies. Its underlying theory is closely connected to philosophical hermeneutics, insofar as both are interested in the dialectics between self-understanding and dialogue as essential ingredients of theories of narrativity. The fundamental assumption of DST is that our self-understanding is shaped through an inner dialogue wherein several voices participate. This assumption correlates nicely with basic insights of hermeneutic philosophy and other forms of dialogical thought. DST is an instrument that helps us get rid of simplistic forms of identity-formation through opposites, and to replace them with a more pluralistic and perspectival way of thinking, a more polyphonic thinking that allows also conflicting voices to contribute to the definition of ourselves. DST shares this approach with certain trends in hermeneutic philosophy.
