Mind and Supermind (concluding lectures)

Author: Rod Hemsell

Last Updated: November 28, 2012

These two concluding lectures in the philosophy of evolution course focus primarily on the intuitional philosophies of Bergson, Whitehead, Heidegger, and Sri Aurobindo. The influence of Platonic and Aristotelian thought on the philosophy of evolution in general is an important thesis and unifying theme of these lectures. The evolution of a higher intuitive mind and a new conception of time is shown to be the necessary direction  for a further evolution of consciousness, beyond rational mind.  Sri Aurobindo’s evolutionary spirituality combines the principles of classical Greek metaphysics and Vedic psychology to create a pathway for this next evolutionary advance.
