Mind and Emergence: From Quantum to Consciousness Philip Clayton . Complex emergent phenomena require irreducible levels of explanation in physics, chemistry and biology. Clayton concludes with a defence of emergentist panentheism and a Christian constructive theology consistent with the new sciences of emergence. Tracing the past history and current definitions of the concept, Clayton assesses the case for emergent phenomena in the natural world and their significance for philosophy and theology. This pattern of emergence suggests a new approach to the problem of consciousness, which is neither reducible to brain states nor proof of a mental substance or soul. Although emergence does not entail classical theism, it is compatible with a variety of religious positions. Strong claims have been made for emergence as a new paradigm for understanding science, consciousness, and religion!
