Pattberg: Invitation to Iran

Video Footage from Iran tour in December 2012 re-emerged. Video at the CISSC Website Here. Visited five cultural centers and held talks at four key universities, in Tehran, Qom, Zahedan, and Kermanshah.
 "All cultures should compete for their terminologies like they compete for everything else."
 "We need a global language in order to communicate with each other; but that global language is not today's English. The future global language will have to adapt many more non-European concepts and vocabularies, words from China, Japan, India, and Iran."
"Most of the so-called dialogue among civilizations is in English language. What can foreign cultures do to contribute to global language?"
