Sri Aurobindo – Livre en anglais
The three philosophical essays in this book were first published in the monthly review Arya in 1915 and 1918. In the title essay « Evolution » Sri Aurobindo deconstructs the materialistic theory of evolution, which had been the keynote of nineteenth century thought. He shows how advanced thinking was moving towards the perception of evolution « by a superconscient Knowledge which reveals things in Matter, Life and Mind out of the unfathomable Inconscient from which they rise ». The other essays are titled « The Inconscient » and « Materialism ».
