In his essay "Man's Place in the Universe: Reflexions on Complexity" (1942)
Teilhard provides the reader with a warning which includes the statement: "Being
concerned with the links and order of succession revealed by these phenomena,
I shall not deal with their deep causality. Perhaps I shall risk an 'ultraphysical'
excursus. But look for no metaphysics here." The Vision of the Past, 217. N.B.:
You cannot dispense with metaphysics unless you have a metaphysics of your

Teilhard even made room for Original Sin (in its orthodox Catholic version, not
the scientific version I noted in chapter 8). To his dismay, the Church viewed this
as heresy, and forbade him to teach it in Paris, so he spent the rest of his days in
China, studying fossils, until his death in 1955. His book The Phenomenon of
Man (1959) was published posthumously and met with international acclaim, but
the scientific establishment, orthodox Darwinism in particular, was just as
resolute as ...

1. The. Phenomenon. of. Man. Everything does not happen continuously at any
one moment in the universe. Neither does everything happen everywhere in it.
There are no summits without abysses. When the end of the world is mentioned,
the idea that leaps into our minds is always one of catastrophe. Life was born and
propagates itself on the earth as a solitary pulsation. tn the last analysis the best
guarantee that a thing should happen is that it appears to us as vitally necessary.

Perhaps the neocortex has not expanded enough to cause modern man to stop
this belligerent and biologically absurd behavior. But, one can hope that the
human cortex has reached a sufficient level of development for us to understand
that making bombs and using them represents a "fossil" activity of our brains.

phenomenon of man" seems ...

Wolfhart Pannenberg I Pierre Teilhard de Chardin's celebrated preface to The
Phenomenon of Man (Teilhard 1959a) provides the most pregnant description of
his method and the most distinctly interpreted one. He wishes to limit himself to
the "phenomenon" of man. By this self-limitation, he separates himself from
metaphysical analyses that probe behind phenomena, and therefore he can
designate his work as natural science. To be sure, Teilhard is absolutely clear
about the fact ...

The idea of culture Anthropology studies the phenomenon of man, not simply
man's mind, his body, evolution, origins, tools, art, or groups alone, but as parts or
aspects of a general pattern, or whole. To emphasize this fact and make it a part
of their ongoing effort, anthropologists have brought a general word into
widespread use to stand for the phenomenon, and that word is culture. When
they speak as if there were only one culture, as in "human culture," this refers
very broadly to the ...

The title is taken from the writings of a Jesuit priest, Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, β€œ
whose works Flannery O'Connor had been reading at least since early 1961,”
and whose ideas are highly relevant to the particular meaning of Flannery O'
Connor's sacramental view. Teilhard's The Phenomenon of Man expresses his
belief in an evolutionary process toward an ultimate Omega point, at which the
consciousness of the self (hominisation, β€œthe individual and instantaneous leap
