Martinus Cobbenhagen (1893-1954) is the founding father of the 'Tilburgse Hogeschool'. With his readings and articles he accompanied and encouraged the budding academic and social life in Tilburg. Together, these texts form Cobbenhagen’s 'idea' of Tilburg University. Right after World War II, when academia had to be virtually reinvented, they were collected and published.
The bilingual edition Cobbenhagen essays is meant for all those who take Tilburg University to heart. Because you can only innovate and renew something when you first identify with its founding thoughts.
