Eusebius McKaiser Delivers Keynote Address at Wits Graduation Ceremony

A Bantu in My BathroomEusebius McKaiser, author of A Bantu in My Bathroom and fellow of the Wits Centre for Ethics, delivered the keynote address at a graduation ceremony for higher degrees from the Engineering and the Built Environment and Humanities faculties at the University of the Witwatersrand.

McKaiser said that South Africa needs an established culture of pursuing academic excellence for the sake of curiosity as opposed to choosing projects solely on the basis of practicality. He feels that often determining the direction of projects based on intellectual curiosity will take the projects in a socially relevant direction.
