In recent years there has been a resurgence of interest in a ‘communitarian’ philosophic approach, such as that espoused by Amitai Etzioni to American societal reform and progress. Communitarianism is a social philosophy defined as ‘the third way’ beyond liberalism and conservatism. Upon close examination, the vision embodied in it has close parallels with much of the peaceful, educational, spiritual and moral philosophy found in the work of the M. Fethullah Gülen Movement and in much of modern Turkish culture and society as a whole. The paper examines the particulars of each and what exactly is being advocated ,with emphasis on the common ground between the two, drawing especially on the efforts of the Institute of Interfaith Dialogue and their sponsored trips to Turkey. It then recommends ways in which Etzioni’s group might reach out to the Gülen Movement for mutual understanding and borrowing of the most effective methods evident in their approach to peace, dialogue and understanding. It suggests that co-operative ventures in a similar vein might also be initiated between communitarian-minded groups in Europe and the Dialogue Society. It anticipates what might be some obstacles peculiar to American society in adopting such an effort and how these obstacles might be circumvented. There is also much that American society, and perhaps others as well, could learn from the spiritual and moral framework displayed in present Turkish society that embraces the Gülen spirit. As the paper concludes: The possibilities for a true communitarian imperative become manifest but will demand great joint effort. An effort, however, that can bear sweet fruit, like the trees along the thoroughfares in Turkey, for all. The Turkish word to describe the impetus of the Gülen movement is hizmet. That translates into English as ‘service’, which is a near perfect description of communitarianism.
