I dug up an old article from The New Scholastic which argued for the goal or telos of evolution. Simplified, with a link to the major premise, the argument is lovely:
But evolution as such generates a diversity and distinction in species
Therefore, evolution as such produces a good.
St. Thomas recognizes how easy it is to be wrong about the major premise (either by thinking multiplicity is accidental, or evil, which is very difficult not to do.) The minor premise is given from the terms: there is no evolution without some sort of diversity in species, and diversity in species is explained by evolution. So for Thomists at least, evolution- even in Dawkins’ terms- is teleological. Oddly enough, in an evolutionary world, natural species are more able to contribute to a primary good of the universe than a stable species would be. The goal is not flux, which is simply an instrument, it’s diversity and distinction, which is the goal.
