Publisher Description

What is the meaning of our existence in the cosmic scheme?

Is there a divine purpose in life or is it merely the mechanical playing-out of competing “greedy genes”? 

Do we live in a blind universe aimlessly running its course from Big Bang to Big Crunch or is there a higher purpose in evolution?

If there is a conscious guiding intent, why does it allow evil to exist?

How do we transcend the limits of a blind “scientism” locking itself out of a vaster understanding by refusing to admit the existence of any factors outside of its self-imposed limits of “scientific” verifiability? Can these questions be tackled without landing in the other extreme of religious dogma?

Is our planet Earth special in the universe?

Do we human beings have a special role in evolution?


The Belgian writer Georges Van Vrekhem explores these and other timeless questions in the light of Sri Aurobindo’s evolutionary concept and casts a refreshing new look on issues that have been the lasting preoccupation of seekers throughout the ages.
