Who is Rik Pinxten?
Rik is professor emeritus in cultural anthropology and has some refreshing ideas about religions, cultures and personal identity. For many years, the speaker has been saying that mixing cultures is not only irreversible, but also enriching. Nonetheless, he is against the conventional belief in multiculturalism, which he believes does not unite communities. Instead, he calls for inter-culturalism.
Pinxten will stimulate you with his message, but also with the way in which he presents it. He uses dry humour as an extra weapon to encourage himself and the audience to pause for thought. He dares to philosophise about everyday things, without a pompous tone. Allow yourself to be guided by this speaker and arrive at your own new insights.
Rik Pinxten is an interesting speaker. He clearly presents a very well-founded argument.
