  • Spiritual evolution is the philosophical, theological, esoteric or spiritual idea that nature and human beings and/or human culture evolve: either extending from the established cosmological pattern (ascent), or in accordance with certain pre-established potentials. The phrase "spiritual evolution" can occur in the context of "higher evolution", a term used to differentiate psychological, mental, or spiritual evolution from the "lower" or biological evolution of physical form. The concept of spiritual evolution is also complemented by the idea of a creative impulse in human beings, known as epigenesis. Within this broad definition, theories of spiritual evolution are very diverse. They may be cosmological (describing existence at large), personal (describing the development of the individual), or both. They can be holistic (holding that higher realities emerge from and are not reducible to the lower), idealist (holding that reality is primarily mental or spiritual) or nondual (holding that there is no ultimate distinction between mental and physical reality). One can regard all of them as teleological to a greater or lesser degree. Philosophers, scientists, and educators who have proposed theories of spiritual evolution include Schelling, Hegel, Carl Jung, Max Théon, Helena Petrovna Blavatsky, Henri Bergson, Rudolf Steiner, Sri Aurobindo, Jean Gebser, Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, Owen Barfield, Arthur M. Young, Edward Haskell, E. F. Schumacher, Erich Jantsch, Clare W. Graves, Alfred North Whitehead, Terence McKenna, P.R. Sarkar. As of 2015 William Irwin Thompson (born 1938), Victor Skumin (born 1948), Ken Wilber (born 1949), and Brian Swimme (born 1950) work in this field. (en)
  • Spirituele evolutie is het filosofische, theologische, esoterische of spirituele idee dat de natuur en de mens of de menselijke cultuur volgens een vast kosmologisch patroon of stijging, of volgens vooraf vastgestelde potenties evolueren. Dit concept van vooraf vastgestelde evolutie wordt ondersteund door het idee van de creatieve impuls bij de mens, epiginese genaamd. Binnen deze brede definities zijn de theorieën over spirituele evolutie zeer divers. Ze kunnen kosmologisch zijn (die het bestaan in het geheel beschrijven), persoonlijk (die het bestaan van het individu beschrijven) of beide. Ze kunnen holistisch, idealistisch of nonduaal zijn. Allemaal kunnen ze min of meer tot de theologie worden toegeschreven. Filosofen, wetenschappers en onderwijzers die de theorieën van spirituele evolutie aanhingen, zijn onder meer Nader Angha, Friedrich von Schelling, Hegel, Max Théon, Henri Bergson, Sri Ôrobindo, Jean Gebser, Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, Arthur M. Young, Edward Haskell, Ernst Friedrich Schumacher, Erich Jantsch, Clare W. Graves, Alfred North Whitehead, Terence McKenna, Prabhat Rainjan Sarkar, en Ken Wilber. Deze theoristen trachten (voor het grootste gedeelte) non-materialistisch of non-reductionistisch te zijn. (nl)
  • Evolução espiritual é a ideia filosófica, teológica, esotérica ou espiritual de que a natureza e os seres humanos e/ou a cultura humana evoluem. Dentro desta ampla definição, as teorias da evolução espiritual são muito diversas. Elas podem ser cosmológicas (descrevendo existência em geral), pessoal (descrevendo o desenvolvimento do indivíduo), ou de ambos. Eles podem ser holística (sustentando que realidades mais elevadas emergem e não são redutíveis), idealista (detenção que a realidade é essencialmente mental ou espiritual) ou não-dual (sustentando que não há uma distinção fundamental entre a realidade física e mental). Todos elas podem ser consideradas teleológicas em maior ou menor grau. Filósofos, cientistas e educadores que propuseram teorias da evolução espiritual incluem Schelling, Hegel, Max Théon, Helena Petrovna Blavatsky, Henri Bergson, Rudolf Steiner, Sri Aurobindo, Jean Gebser, Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, Owen Barfield, Arthur M. Young, Edward Haskell, E. F. Schumacher, Erich Jantsch, Clare W. Graves, Alfred North Whitehead, Terence McKenna, P. R. Sarkar, Allan Kardec e contemporâneos William Irwin Thompson, Brian Swimme, e Ken Wilber. (pt)
