EMERGENCE IN THE INORGANIC WORLD

In: Philosophia Reformata

The “world”, as we see and experience it, is multi-modal, multi-dimensional, multi-coloured, and multi-facetted; in other words, it is rich and deep in meaning and it defies complete explanation in any analytical sense. In his book Purpose in the Living World? Creation and Emergent Evolution, Jacob Klapwijk (2008) proposes a theory which, he says, intends to account for how this complex, multifacetted richness in living things emerged, how it has come about, how the diverse living reality came to be as we experience it now. In order to set out his theory in its full extent, Klapwijk makes an initial careful distinction between creation and becoming.
