Meaning and value are fundamental to humans coexisting in civilized societies. The contemporary world demands mutual respect and understanding whether beliefs in particular thoughts and actions are accepted and shared among stakeholders. Philosophy is an ideal medium for interpreting and conveying such expectations. Philosophy provides the historical basis, the contextual relevance, and the contemporary reality to both expectations and outcomes in thought provoking and meaningful ways. Philosophy guides understanding in moral judgments, rational discourse, and perspectives routed in knowledge and experience. Constructing appropriate meaning is becoming even more relevant in contemporary era because of multiple variances, especially along the purview of nation states. Yet, globalization is nibbling away these colloquial understanding. Migration is on the increase. Global outsourcing and off shoring is rapidly creating new demands on communication and collaborative endeavors. Although the “problems” may be multifaceted, one common thread to the comingling and intermingling is language.
