When it comes to evolution, we’ve all heard about fossils and fruit flies, Darwin and Dawkins. But evolution embraces much more. Today, a movement of visionary scientists, philosophers, and spiritual thinkers are 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.
Evolutionaries — Unlocking the Spiritual and Cultural Potential of Science’s Greatest Idea
Carter Phipps speaks with Big Think’s Jason Gots about what he calls ‘evolutionaries’ – individuals whose evolutionary perspective on personal and social development enables them to radically improve their own lives and drive human culture forward.
Carter Phipps is an author, journalist, and leading voice in the emerging field of Evolutionary Spirituality. For the past decade, as executive editor of EnlightenNext magazine, he has been at the forefront of contemporary spiritual, philosophical, and cultural discourse, and his writings have played a key role in making important new thinking accessible to a wider audience. His first book, EVOLUTIONARIES: Unlocking the Spiritual and Cultural Potential of Science’s Greatest Idea, will be published by Harper Perennial in May 2012.
