L.M.: Have you had any feedback from the workshop in Brazil and Africa?

L.E.: Yes, and a great amount  of goodwill. The comparison with the local reality was also positive. The world can no longer be colonized. Students must measure their own ideas up against the local customs and difference in religions.

L.M.: In the past, you have investigated topics like the precariousness of life and meaning of death. Which appointments are there for near future?
