The latter discovered   Jan Koster non-trivial and relatively simple laws of nature, explaining numerous classes of seemingly different facts. It is far from clear whether ‘natural selection’ can be compared to this or even should be called an explanation at all. Suppose you came from Mars and were very ignorant of dog-breeding and found out one day that there are so many different breeds of dogs thanks to the fact that breeders make selections in their breeding procedures. You would certainly have made some kind of discovery, but would you have the feeling that you had explained variation among dogs and that you could rightly claim to be a Martian Newton or Einstein from now on?

These gains are perhaps real (we lived through the 1960s, after all), but ultimately they are not sufficient if we realize that this new variant is also an ideology that divides and fragmentises human groups, namely by denying their rich and universal common ground. In an increasingly multicultural society, this is a less hopeful perspective than often thought and it is avoidable if we cultivate the promising cognitive theories that seek to discover the rich properties of our common nature.

Marr (1864–1934), who was to become a notorious linguist under the Stalin regime, Hoogvliet had not hesitated to cross swords with him. During the closing banquet it was Hoogvliet who extended a word of thanks to the Danish Orientalists and to the Odd Fellows, in whose palace the banquet was held. As far as his contacts with the world of Anglicists are concerned it should be noted that Hoogvliet appears to have corresponded with Henry Sweet (1845–1912). Moreover, when Otto Jespersen (1860–1943) visited the Netherlands around 1908, he invited Hoogvliet to give him a brief lecture on Dutch phonetics (Hoogvliet 1910: 72).
