Read full description of the books The Heart of Matter:I just finished "The Heart of the Matter" by Pierre Teilhard de Chardin. Perhaps it was my state of mind while working my way through this collection of works, or perhaps I am not ready for the material, but I found it a very challenging read. The material is challenging - This scientist spent much of his life struggling to connect the very separate but obviously connected roads of Science and Religion. And at least for me - this work did not connect the two. But like many works of Philosophy, so much of the effectiveness is the time in one's life one finds a work and their place in it. So perhaps it is not my time nor place..... Oh well... The best parts for me were the letters he wrote to friends to celebrate wedding events. These personal letters do more to expose the heart of de Chardin than his more scholarly works. Enjoy your summer.
Read information about the authorPierre Teilhard de Chardin was a visionary French Jesuit, paleontologist, biologist, and philosopher, who spent the bulk of his life trying to integrate religious experience with natural science, most specifically Christian theology with theories of evolution. In this endeavor he became enthralled with the possibilities for humankind, which he saw as heading for an exciting convergence of systems, an "Omega point" where the coalescence of consciousness will lead us to a new state of peace and planetary unity. Long before ecology was fashionable, he saw this unity as being based intrinsically upon the spirit of the Earth. Studied in England. Traveled to numerous countries, including China, as missionary.
Died in New York City on Easter 1955
