Summary

Reinventing the Sacred. A New View of Science, Reason, and Religion. By Stuart A. Kauffman. Basic Books, New York, 2008. 334 pp. $27, C$28.95. ISBN 9780465003006.

The author argues for his emergence-based view of the world and "that the qualities of divinity that we hold sacred-creativity, meaning, purposeful action-are in fact properties of the universe that can be investigated scientifically."
