Mind and Emergence examines the case for emergence in contemporary science and philosophy. A variety of recent scientific results have challenged the reductively physicalist understanding of the natural world, suggesting instead that evolution produces a series of interdependent but irreducible levels of organization. If sustained, these data require revision not only with the philosophy of science but also to standard views of consciousness, culture, and religion.
