Organicism and the Dynamism of Finality

(p.190) 18 Organicism and the Dynamism of Finality

Raymond Ruyer

Alyosha Edlebi

University of Minnesota Press

In this chapter, Ruyer critiques the doctrine of organicism, which claims to escape both determinism and finalism, as well as the Kantian doctrine of finality. In this critique, he explores the conception of “organization” and the relationship between finalism and determinism. The chapter goes on to show what new conception of finality can replace the two renounced doctrines.
