Abstract

The article reflects on some characters that are common to philosophical, religious and scientific reflection about the phenomenon of life and in particular it identifies two: mysteriousness and teleology. It is claimed that the teleology in living beings is something that modern science and evolutionary biology have unsuccessfully tried to eliminate and it is considered a bridge-concept between philosophy, religion and science. In this way it becomes possible to connect the philosophical understanding of life with the religious beliefs by the teleological argument.
