Speech Frans Zwarts: Another Manic Monday


In his opening speech for the academic year Rector Magnificus Frans Zwarts draws an analogy between the university and evolution. "The universe of science," he says, "should be regarded as a cultural survival machine in the jungle of our society." An analogy, he adds, that should not be taken too literally. However, it is one that helps us better understand the relationship between coincidence and intent.
