During the lecture, students were impressed by how knowledgeable he was and erudite. The lecture revolved around two letters from Europe. By way of introduction, Arend Hilhors talked about his own experiences and his story with China in an approachable way, which drove him closer to the audience, and then he touched upon the historical origin of the name Eurasia. After this, he elaborated on China's economic and cultural developments in recent years, both which were mentioned in the two letters, as well as what was happening in modern Europe in terms of science and technology, military power and so on, calling for respect for the diversity of civilization, which was food for thought. In the interactive link, teachers and students exchanged their own ideas with Arend Hilhors, with little gems of polemical fire scattered through the room.
