Abstract

The following essay reviews Jacob Klapwijk's Purpose in the Living World: Creation and Emergent Evolution. Klapwijk’s philosophical investigation into the question of the evolution of life results in a defense for emergent evolution, which, in his account, overcomes the failures found in other accounts of evolutionary theory.
