“The major problems in the world are the result of the
difference between the way nature works and the way
                    man thinks.”

                                        Gregory Bateson

Evolution is the way nature works.

Crisis occurs when inescapable
   circumstances change faster than we can.




Conscious Evolution, American Philosophy, and The Future – from a talk by Jeff Carreira in New York City on June 30, 2009
Evolution is an inescapable circumstance.




Conscious Evolution, American Philosophy, and The Future – from a talk by Jeff Carreira in New York City on June 30, 2009
In times of Crisis Philosophy is not a luxury
                  because…

  Deeply held ideas, even those that have
helped us change in the past, can become a
       hindrance to further change.

               An Evolutionary Metaphysics

                                                   And

                         An Evolutionary Ethics




Conscious Evolution, American Philosophy, and The Future – from a talk by Jeff Carreira in New York City on June 30, 2009
American Philosophy has long been
  occupied with the problem of navigating
     the shift from a static model of the
  universe to an evolutionary model of the
                   universe.

The Character of American
                            Philosophy
                   A Dynamic Tension between:


            anti-intellectual, action-oriented utilitarianism
                                   and
                     passionate, utopian idealism

3 Foundations of an American Evolutionary
                Metaphysics


             1. A recognition of the continuous and unbroken
                nature of the universe from the inner
                experience of human beings to the outer forms
                of the physical universe.

             1. A recognition of the enormous evolutionary
                potential inherent in the human capacity to
                make conscious choices.

             •     A recognition of the necessity for a new
                   evolutionary ethics to guide human activity.
