A compact Kähler manifold X is shown to be simply connected if its `symmetric cotangent algebra' is trivial. Conjecturally, such a manifold should even be rationally connected. The relative version is also shown: a proper surjective connected holomorphic map f: XS between connected manifolds induces an isomorphism of fundamental groups if its smooth fibres are as above, and if X is Kähler.
