Summary/Abstract: This publication presents the Proceedings of Harvard Square Symposium Volume 3, Year 2017. The third edition of the Harvard Square Symposium was suggestively framed as, “The Holistic Society: Multi-Disciplinary Perspectives,” and welcomed papers authored by prominent academics from several countries. Countering the current tendencies for isolationism and suspicion toward the other, the authors are more than intentional in generating a meaningful global dialogue. Their efforts fall in line with the very goal of the Harvard Square Symposium to reunite promising and well established scholars in formal and informal creative environments, to propose holistic ways of thinking by nurturing the engagement of the global intellectual elite into conversations meant to tackle the new challenges faced by the mankind. The contributors to this volume remain nevertheless skeptical about the sustainability of some contemporary cultural trends to unite divided societies and to create a holistic society.
