English term or phrase: dialogue between/among/of
I'd like to know if "between" is acceptable when talking about more than two parties in an exchange, as in the example below.

the dialogue between theology, philosophy and science

Are "dialogue among" / "dialogue of theology, philosophy and science" more appropriate in such this case?

Thanks!
