Re-interpreting the theory of evolution in the light of modern physics, Human Destiny argues that the strictly materialistic theory of the Universe, and of man, is no longer tenable. Man, it says, is not on this earth by chance alone - and the author presents a series of convincing arguments to indicate that by the laws of pure chance man, and even life, could not be here at all. Dr. du Nouy contends that science finds a purpose evident in the history of life which rises above the laws of matter.
