Emergence of consciousness and Human being: A Study with special reference to Aurobindo

For Science, with its prominent principle ex-nihilo-nihil-fit , it becomes enigmatic to explain the emergence of consciousness out of matter or material conditions . Not only consciousness, but evolution of Humans as continuously developing species with its varied possibilities has amazed scientists.Aurobindo proposes a model explanation. This paper deals with Aurobindos theory of evolution, involution and Integral yoga in contrast to Western theory of evolution. Being the background of Aurobindos philosophy, theory of Advaita Vedanta has also been discussed.
