WEAK & STRONG
The 22nd edition of Heidelberg University’s research magazine
12/6/2023 The 22nd issue of Heidelberg University's award-winning research magazine focusses on the opposites »strong« and »weak«. Once again, we were responsible for the editorial design.
The fact that the two terms »weak & strong« are not absolute, but rather relative concepts, is particularly true in science: what is considered a strength in one context can become a weakness in another and vice versa. The scientists at Heidelberg University show, among other things, that many processes in life require an interplay of strong and weak elements in order to achieve balance, success or even resilience. And time and again, it is shown that many structures that are weak on their own can develop great strength together.
The contributions from a wide range of disciplines deal, for example, with weak and strong states, with molecular balance that creates artificial life, with robust biological systems, with gender stereotypes and their effects and with the question of how we can create schools from which all children and young people emerge stronger.
