Abstract

Emergent probability is Bernard Lonergan's account of world process, which explains the intelligibility of natural evolution, human history and the human cognitional structure that makes insight possible. Emergent probability explains laws of nature and “laws” of human operations. It is the immanent intelligibility of the order in which ideas, insights, events, things, schemes, institutions, nations exist or occur, reoccur or continue to function. It is, therefore, the worldview that envisions conditioned series of schemes, their progressive and defensive cycles and their respective probabilities of emergence and survival.
