Summary/Abstract: Starting from one of Emanuil Gojdu’s affirmation, our paper tries to point out our humanity’s chronic need for communion by avoiding the false intercultural dialogue which is, in fact, a monologue of the one who, temporarily, holds a bit of power in this world which seems to be set on the way to self-destruction. In order to reach this noble goal, we are invoking inspiration, trying to ask – as Parsifal did – the right question, because its necessity and stringency are obvious nowadays. Thus, we are building our foundation on Paul Ricœur’s insights into the Golden Rule, trying to underline the way in which Europe’s actual problems could be mediated and solved through translation. We are also using Mihai Șora’s vision of the communication purpose’s fulfilment through true dialogue, which is communion.
