Agapastic Evolution.

(Agapasm). Theory of evolution by creative love. Developed by C. S. S. Peirce.* The doctrines that represent it may be termed agapasticism. The mere proposition that the law of love is operative in the cosmos may be termed agapism. Attraction, sympathy, and purpose appear in the envisioned agapistic development of human thought.
