Evolution's Purpose "Presents the author's view of the scientific story of our evolutionary origins to show how evolution's progressive generation of emergent value reveals a larger purpose within the process. He demonstrates how this purpose can be felt within each of us as the evolutionary impulse to make things better--to grow toward ever-widening realizations of beauty, truth, and goodness"--Provided by publisher Full description

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A carefully reasoned dismantling of atheistic materialism 10 novembre 2012
Par Terry Patten - Publié sur Amazon.com
Reading this book is like eating a well-prepared and nutritious meal, one that packs a psychoactive punch. This is also the best book to read if you want to start penetrating the opacity of an atheistic scientistic friend or relative.

Evolution's Purpose is many things, including a carefully reasoned dismantling of atheistic materialism. It's really less a repudiation of old myths than a meticulous inferential exploration of what we can learn from a close examination of the very structure of cosmic, biological and cultural evolution. McIntosh notices the patterns hidden in our evolutionary history, working in a modest, parsimonious manner (avoiding immodest assumptions, always disciplining himself as per Occam's razor) and his reasoning reveals instead of a dead materialistic universe, a cosmos that has spontaneously always gently aspired, one that has been attracted to manifest not only ever-increasing complexity and consciousness as Teilhard said, but which has burst forth a series of unaccountable emergences--the big bang's something-from-nothing that gave us space-time and matter-energy, and then the birth of DNA and life, and then the emergence of mind and culture and cultural evolution.

It's no wonder that McIntosh was trained at a top law school (University of Virginia) because he excels in using rigorous logic to build, step-by-step, an argument that makes a minimum of assumptions but which proceeds to directly challenge the underlying materialistic bias of our current scientific-philosophical establishment. He looks where scientistic fundamentalists can see only dead matter churning with mechanical physical, chemical, biological and electromagnetic processes, and points to evidence they overlook, from which he carefully proves the case that there are forces at work that cannot be explained except by noticing the physics of the internal universe, and the values-gravity that draws evolution upward, toward greater Truth, Beauty and Goodness.

Reading it will awaken anyone more fully and powerfully into a clearer, more inclusive worldview. It does the hard work of philosophy. I recommend really reading it. It's a pleasure. And you'll emerge with a more powerfully grounded evolutionary worldview, intuiting an authentic trans-rational spirituality. McIntosh is making important contributions. He's not only helping build the new integral evolutionary philosophical worldview, he's building strong bridges to it, in the language of modernist rationalism. This one is broad and sturdy and as it gains the audience it deserves, I expect it will help uplift the level of the age-old debate between science and spirituality.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 I felt changed by reading this book 23 octobre 2012
Par Jeff D Salzman - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Achat authentifié par Amazon
Steve McIntosh makes a powerful and exciting argument for the progressive nature of evolution in matter, life, culture and personal development. He demonstrates how these fundamental dimensions of life are called forward into more complex and intelligent forms by the gravitational pull of Goodness, Truth and Beauty. Ultimately Evolution's Purpose reveals a radical spiritual teaching, and it succeeds not by relying on established religious lineages but by pointing out the profound creative forces that are demonstrably at work in our world and in our lives.

I especially appreciate Steve for his ability to transmit his insight in words. It's heartening to hear the story of creation and evolution told in such a fresh and gifted voice. I love Evolution's Purpose because I feel changed by reading it. I finished it feeling more alive, happy and awake to the presence of the loving intelligence that is animating the cosmos and my own being.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 feast of realization 22 octobre 2012
Par S. Morgenthaler - Publié sur Amazon.com
One "ah ha" moment usually makes a book worth the price of admission. Evolution's Purpose is one "ah ha" moment after another - a string of truths that will have you nodding your head in recognition, if not agreement, from start to finish.

Evolution's Purpose is a courageous return to meaning and a call to humble but vigorous intentionality. From evolution as the seminal dynamic in all of life ("the monumental truth transcending the boundaries of science") to the "minimal metaphysics" of beauty, truth, and goodness, and finally, to the crucial responsibility humans have in co-creating a sustainable and gracious future, McIntosh has created a feast of realization, prepared with effortless clarity and grace.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A firm footing for Evolutionary progression 23 octobre 2012
Par kurt koch - Publié sur Amazon.com
This book does what quite a few others have tried and failed to do. That is to give a clear view of the direction of evolution without sounding fanatical or mystical. There is quite a bit of evidence and referencing in the book to bring to light the clear direction of evolution and to bring the topic out of just a biological framework and into a cultural context. I would highly reccomend the book because of its insightful views.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 An inspiring work of philosophy 2 novembre 2012
Par Ross Hostetter - Publié sur Amazon.com
There are perhaps one or two opportunities in every lifetime to participate in something new coming into being. A reading of Evolution's Purpose by Steve McIntosh is just such an opportunity. This book is a precise and well-built foundation for much of what is to come-- a careful argument from an emerging public intellectual that evolution cannot be fully understood as merely a bio-mechanical accident, but rather must be seen as a process driven by `matter that chooses'--namely by our own consciousness and the use of our free will. The opportunity presented is to claim our role as creators of evolution itself-- as custodians of the most powerful creative force in the universe.
This is an inspiring book of philosophy. You will get smarter just by reading it, and will never again see the world in the same old way.
