About this course:

In this course, we follow the evolution of consciousness according to three contemporary theories, with special attention to Teilhard de Chardin’s The Phenomenon of Man. Chardin takes a scientific-philosophical approach that is truly unique and centers on energy—from a detailed study of matter to the birth of thought, culminating in a bold and compelling synthesis. Abraham J. Heschell called it, “A most extraordinary book, of far-reaching significance for the understanding of man's place in the universe.” It should prove a very interesting study. Suggested book: The Phenomenon of Man.
