THE EMERGENT SELF

Modern Believing (2016), 57, (2), 143–152.

Abstract

The debate over the nature of human personhood continues to be dominated by dualist positions on the one side and materialist reductions on the other. But new understandings of emergent complexity over evolutionary time offer a more balanced and nuanced account, one that leaves place for freedom, moral responsibility and personal agency. This account is upwardly open to God and the possibility of continuing existence after death, without however depending on strong knowledge claims that conflict with science.
