This course follows 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. “A most extraordinary book," Abraham J. Heschell said, "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.
