Sun 20 August
AT THE TABLE WITH: CLEMENS DRIESSEN
On Sunday 20 August, Niekolaas Johannes Lekkerkerk, director of RADIUS CCA, will talk to Clemens Driessen, author, philosopher and assistant professor at Wageningen University. The conversation will depart from the text DESCARTES WAS HERE: IN SEARCH OF THE ORIGIN OF CARTESIAN SPACE, written by Clemens Driessen. In the text, Driessen analyzes the development of the Westland on the basis of the mathematical-mechanical principle of the originally French philosopher René Descartes, who lived in The Netherlands for some time and can be seen as a forerunner of the Enlightenment. This talk is part of a series of presentations that will take place at RADIUS and are part of the public program of THE GLASS CITY developed in collaboration with RURAL SCHOOL OF ECONOMICS.
