Open Viewpoint Method (OVM): a Secular-Religious Bridge
Open Viewpoint Method (OVM), formerly Inclusive Interpretation Technique (IIT). OVM is a linguistic and cognitive strategy designed to foster inclusive and respectful discourse across diverse belief systems. By employing a combination of concept substitution and semantic flexibility, OVM enables participants to engage in conversations about philosophical, religious, or ethical matters without compromising their own beliefs. This method encourages openness to multiple perspectives while navigating potentially polarizing subjects, making it a valuable tool for meaningful dialogue.
