Activity Two
Thinking about different styles of writing

Read the following passage and decide which of the terms defined below best describes it as a form of thinking and style of writing.

Ryckmans (1995) claims that the term ‘multiculturalism’ doesn’t make sense, and he likens using the term to demanding that ‘water be wet’. He justifies this assertion with the observation that all human cultures are characterized by diversity and change, and are therefore always ‘multiple’ in nature.
