Brocker I 614
Being/Jonas: "That being is about something, at least about ourselves, is the first thing we can learn about it from the presence of purposes in it" (1). That "nature holds values because it holds purposes" (2), Jonas says, shows that there is no value neutrality of nature. "Having purpose" is a "good by itself" (3), life in itself is valuable. (JonasVsTheory of Evolution).
Evolutionary Biology/Brocker: would reply that life is only a possibility of nature that chance has realized.
N.B.: According to Jonas, the duty of mankind to avoid the total destruction of itself and all life can therefore be read directly from nature. See Ecological Imperative/Jonas, Ethics/Jonas, Teleology/Jonas, Values/Jonas.
