Jacob Klapwijk pages

 Jacob Klapwijk (born 24 October 1933 in Dronrijp) studied under D. H. Th. Vollenhoven in philosophy at the Free University in Amsterdam. In 1974, he was awarded a personal chair, a Chair of History of Modern Philosophy, at the Free University. He was later awarded a Chair in Systematic Philosophy. He is the author of a number of books in Dutch, German and English including Purpose in the Living World? Creation and Emergent Evolution, Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, which offers a philosophical analysis of the relation of evolutionary biology to religion, and addresses the question of whether the evolution of life is exclusively a matter of chance and blind fortune or is better understood as including the notion of purpose. He proposes to bridge the gap via the idea of ‘emergent evolution.’ In this theory the process of evolution has an emergent or innovative character resulting in a living world of ingenious, multifaceted complexity.
