WHY EMPHASIZE THE LEAP!?
A GREAT PHILOSOPHER’S PERSPECTIVE

If this isn’t one of Mr. Berra’s yogi-isms, it should be: The whole idea of evolving is to get somewhere. And that, in fact, is the best justification I can think of for making the LEAP! Philosopher Daniel C. Dennett seemed to embrace the idea in the closing sentences of his acclaimed work, Freedom Evolves. He writes: “We [humans] are in the best position to decide what to do next, because we have the broadest knowledge and hence the best perspective on the future. What that future holds in store for our planet is up to all of us, reasoning [and LEAP!ing] together.”
