9780061916137: Evolutionaries: Unlocking the Spiritual and Cultural Potential of Science's Greatest Idea

“Carter Phipps brilliantly expands our understanding of evolution by showing us that a new science is emerging—one that will holistically integrate our understanding of consciousness, cosmology, and evolution.”
—Deepak Chopra

Blending cutting-edge ideas with incisive spiritual insights, Evolutionaries is the first popular presentation of an emerging school of thought called “evolutionary spirituality.” Carter Phipps, the former executive editor of EnlightenNext magazine, asserts that evolution is not only a scientific but also a spiritual idea in a book whose message has the power to bring new meaning and purpose to life as we know it. Readers will be fascinated and enlightened by Evolutionaries, a book which Deepak Chopra, the world-renowned author of The Seven Spiritual Laws of Superheroes, Jesus, and Buddha, says “is going to help create a worldview that will influence our vision of the future direction of evolution and also our role in consciously participating in it.”

Review:

“This beautifully written book is not only a splendid survey of evolutionary thought and its spiritual implications. It is also a significant contribution to the increasingly important conversation between the natural sciences and our spiritual traditions. Enthusiastically recommended.” (JOHN F. HAUGHT, Senior Fellow at Georgetown University's Woodstock Theological Center and Former Chair and Professor of the Department of Theology at Georgetown University)

“No one has their head and heart around the full range of evolutionary worldviews like Carter Phipps.” (Reverend MICHAEL DOWD, author of Thank God for Evolution)

“A profound and profoundly important new work. With clarity and deep understanding, Carter Phipps walks us through the great evolutionary pioneers and their ideas in this extraordinary philosophy, making the book absolutely indispensable for lay and professional alike. The very highest recommendation!” (KEN WILBER, author of A Brief History of Everything and The Integral Vision)

“We live in one of those rare historical moments when the deepest metaphysical questions are being turned over and examined as we search for a new orientation for the next millennium. It would be hard to find a better guide into this fascinating conversation than Carter Phipps’s Evolutionaries.” (BRIAN SWIMME, Ph.D, Director of the Center for the Story of the Universe and Professor at the California Institute of Integral Studies)

“Brilliantly expands our understanding of evolution. Evolutionaries is going to help create a worldview that will influence our understanding of the future direction of evolution and also our role in consciously participating in it.” (DEEPAK CHOPRA)

“Phipps offers a challenging reexamination of the connection between the ‘evolutionary dynamics of the universe and the very being of the divine.’ ... Thoughtful and provocative.” (Kirkus Reviews)

“A masterful survey. ... Incorporates science and faith by broadening the definition and scope of what evolution is understood to be. ... Phipps’s writing projects a palpable sense of positivity and excitement for what is to come.” (Publishers Weekly)

“Essential reading for anyone who cares about humanity’s future and our role in creating a better one. Evolutionaries, is a brilliant, accessibly written, and eye-opening book” (BARBARA MARX HUBBARD)

Evolutionaries is a tour-de-force where science, poetic prose, philosophical thinking, and authentic spiritual depth come together to deliver a powerful message of hope, optimism, and inspiration.” (ANDREW COHEN, Author of Evolutionary Enlightenment: A New Path to Spiritual Awakening)

“A rare book, equally delightful and deep, Phipps explores how our growing knowledge about the evolutionary process catalyzes nothing less than a revolutionary understanding of our selves.” (ELIZABETH DEBOLD, Author of Mother Daughter Revolution: From Good Girls to Great Women)

From the Back Cover:

When it comes to evolution, we’ve all heard about fossils and fruit flies, Darwin and Dawkins. But the idea of evolution is far more profound—and far-reaching. Today, a movement of visionary scientists, philosophers, and spiritual thinkers is forging a new understanding of evolution that honors science, reframes culture, and radically updates spirituality. Carter Phipps calls them Evolutionaries. His groundbreaking book provides the first popular guide to these exciting minds who are illuminating the secrets of our past and expanding the vistas of our future.

Book Description HarperCollins Publishers Inc, United States, 2012. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 203 x 132 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Evolution is the most creative, all-encompassing force in the universe. It has propelled the development of our world from the moment of the Big Bang through the various wonders of human achievement. Yet our discussion of evolution is often narrowly portrayed as a black-and-white debate between two opposing, entrenched camps, Godless Darwinists versus Creationist Fanatics. But into this rigid ideological warzone, a growing movement of bold, visionary thinkers is stepping out, armed with a set of radically unifying ideas that illuminate a new way of understanding of evolution in both scientific and spiritual terms. Carter Phipps calls them Evolutionaries. As the influential executive editor of EnlightenNext magazine, Phipps has made it his life s work to chart the strides in the emerging science and spirituality of evolution. This book will be the first popular guide to the exciting, progressive theories and thinkers that are prompting an explosive expansion of our consciousness about where we come from, who we are, and where we might be going. Is evolution spiritually directed? Does evolution have a purpose? Is human civilization nearing a point where we can take the reigns of evolution into our own hands, consciously shaping our bodies, our psychology, our environment, and our culture? And if so, what road should we take? Offering provocative and inspiring answers to these questions, Evolutionaries reveals a much more nuanced, more challenging, and - most importantly - more accurate picture of how evolution is being perceived in the spiritual, philosophical, and scientific circles at the leading edge of contemporary culture.
