Evolution's Purpose: An Integral Interpretation of the Scientific Story of Our Origins
More About the Book
Evolution's Purpose: An Integral Interpretation of the Scientific Story of Our Origins

Does the science of evolution really prove that life, humanity, and the universe as a whole are meaningless accidents? On the contrary, as science has increasingly shown how everything in the universe is subject to evolution—including matter, life, and human culture—these very facts reveal that the process of evolution is unmistakably progressive. And as we come to see how evolution progresses, this reveals evolution's purpose—to grow toward ever-widening realizations of beauty, truth, and goodness. McIntosh argues that the purpose of evolution is not "intelligently designed" or otherwise externally controlled; rather, its purpose is being creatively and originally discerned through the choices of evolutionary creatures themselves. Without relying on any spiritual authorities, the author shows how the scientific story of our origins is actually a profound and sacred teaching compatible with many forms of contemporary spirituality.

"McIntosh is persuasive in his arguments. . . ."
Holmes Rolston III, Ph.D winner of the 2003 Templeton prize, and author of Environmental Ethics

"Evolution’s Purpose is truly excellent, clear and convincing. . . ."
Dr. Ervin Laszlo, Distinguished system scientist, President of the Club of Budapest, and author of over 30 books on evolution.

"Steve McIntosh's brilliant ideas are both stimulating and comforting . . ."
Marianne Williamson, author of A Return to Love

Integral Consciousness and the Future of Evolution Integral Consciousness and the Future of Evolution

The emerging perspective known as integral consciousness provides realistic and pragmatic solutions to our growing global problems, both environmental and political. As Steve McIntosh convincingly demonstrates, the integral worldview’s transformational potential provides a way to literally become the change we want to see in the world. This is really two books in one: the first half serves as an accessible and highly readable introduction to the power of integral consciousness, with the second half making a variety of original contributions to the integral perspective and breaking new ground in the application of integral philosophy to politics and spirituality. Moreover, McIntosh provides a much-needed contextualization and critique of the integral worldview's leading author, Ken Wilber, which helps make integral philosophy relevant to a larger audience.

"This book is integral in the best sense: an ingenious gathering of patterns from many fields, giving us a brilliant and useful perspective on the nature of Reality.”
—Jean Houston, Ph.D., Author and Senior Consultant to the United Nations.
