Summary The Measure of All Things is the final volume in a trilogy about man as related to the genesis of the world, to metaphysics, and to the ontological vicissitudes of the human species. This book reviews the condition of man and his relationship with the forces of evolution, in both a biological and a spiritual sense. It is, therefore, an innovative excursion into the present day arguments between the evolutionist and creationist regarding the fate of man.
