On chance and necessity (i)

"The publication 'Le hasard et la necessité' by Monod [1970] can hardly be taken seriously, since this author entirely fails to understand the significance of both chance and necessity as well as the relationship between these two concepts. The late Jacques Monod [1910-1976] is a typical example of numerous 'superspecialists' who, because of their particular substantial achievements, have been canonized by the Establishment and subsequently believe that they are thus qualified to express pontifical views on topics beyond their narrow grasp. Other such examples are Medawar with respect to his pronouncements on phylogeny and related topics, as well as Eccles and diverse quantum physicists elaborating their 'philosophic' views."
