While humans are the embodied products of our evolutionary origins, we can transcend such origins in myriad ways including our approach to the true, the good, and the beautiful. We may stem from our particular histories, cultures, and traditions but we are not fully determined by them. We possess rationality and self‐consciousness which are neither reducible to Darwinian analyses nor explicable via Darwinian drives. Our capacities may have evolved in Darwinian ways but once acquired take off in un‐Darwinian ways.
