 About the Book 

Humans are not simply the result of a mechanistic process. In this broad inquiry, Robert Wesson proposes an approach to evolution that aims to be more in harmony with modern science and more meaningful for the comprehension of our existence. HeMoreHumans are not simply the result of a mechanistic process. In this broad inquiry, Robert Wesson proposes an approach to evolution that aims to be more in harmony with modern science and more meaningful for the comprehension of our existence. He emphasizes the importance for evolution of inner direction and the self-organizing capacities of life. This view is better able to account for the chaotic nature of the evolutionary process and the inherent propensity of complex dynamic systems to grow more complex with time. A large number of examples of plants and animals support this idea, and Wessons account includes both documented scientific facts and anecdotes about the odd aberrations in natural selection.
