Evolution & Creation: A Theosophic Synthesis
By W. T. S. Thackara
A Sunrise Library Publication
Addressing the controversial question, “Is the universe intelligently designed?” this introductory booklet surveys critical problems in Darwinian theory and creationist theology: organic complexity and the origin of life; the relationship of consciousness and matter; who or what is God; design, disparity, and imperfection; and the origin and evolution of man. The discussion reexamines these issues in light of modern scientific research and basic theosophic concepts underlying the world’s religious traditions — suggesting there is a middle ground reconciling spiritual intuition and scientific knowledge. Useful for group study.
