Intercultural communication

Volker Hinnenkamp
Table of contents

‘The world is small!,’ Columbus is said to have exclaimed when he finally reached the New World. Columbus’ ‘discovery’ is also said to have finally combined the two hemispheres, thus having created the one world we live in today – the beginning of that global village, so often cited, where we all can or have to communicate with each other. Of course, between Columbus and satellite communication there was a long way to go. At least the event was an important milestone for the westerners of the world.
