THE LIVING AND THE DIVINE
The opening sections discuss Unger's philosophical line in fairly general terms. The bulk of the essay is devoted to his particular view on the evolution of life that ultimately allows man to apprehend a higher reality.
The essay can also be seen as an example of the application of 'the imagination of reason', a faculty that enables us to understand the world beyond our immediate experience.(cf. E.Unger, The Imagination of Reason, London: Routledge & Kegan Paul, 1952).
