Chapter Summary

This book provides an analysis of the dynamics of Rademaker?s cognition in the various periods of his life. According to the author, during the second World War Rademaker was fearless, courageous in his adherence to the Resistance but?conditioned as he was by his Calvinistic upbringing with its belief in the sanctity of life and with his responsibility as a physician to preserve life wherever possible?he showed hesitation when called upon to share the responsibility for decisions to execute collaborators even when it could be clearly shown that they posed a threat to the lives of active members of the Resistance. Though heartily endorsed by Rademaker, among others, the idea of the Civitas Academica formulated by Jan Mulders, together with Prof. J.A.J. Barge and others, came after a promising springtime after the war in later years, not really to fruition; the times had changed too much.

Keywords: Civitas Academica; J.A.J. Barge; Jan Mulders; Rademaker?s cognition; Resistance; second World War
