And this must profoundly affect our ideas of evolution, for then it does not just become a blind process of survival, but a process of active interaction with the world.

There, he shows his very clear perception that henceforth we had to account for the so-called spiritual qualities of human beings—the capacities for love, conscience, the pursuit of knowledge, and so on—by linking their origin with the evolutionary imperatives of survival and reproduction.
