Read Le phénomène humain 107 review Ò eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB Ô Pierre Teilhard de Chardin Pierre Teilhard de Chardin Ô 7 Read A New Edition and Translation of Le phénomène humain by Sarah Appleton Weber with a Foreword by Brian Swimme The Human Phenomenon by the priest paleontologist and geologist Pierre Teilhard de Chardin is his book of the Earth a discovery a. I ll start this review by asking How prescient can one person be Completing this book in 1940 de Chardin could not have predicted the Internet but if you read about his concept of the noosphere you realize that if he were alive today b 1881 d 1955 he would look at the Internet and say That s it I knew it would be something like that If you read science books and have not yet read Teilhard you know what you need to do Right or wrong De Chardin is one of the few scholars who have even attempted to come up with an answer to the unanswerable uestion what is the goal of evolution Few books I have read attempt to deal with such BIG thoughts And rather than attempt to summarize all his thinking I ll just try to catalog some of the things that in my opinion he predicted or prefigured in this workThe very modern idea of the Anthropocene the idea that the most modern geological era is due to human influence Most recently promoted by Erle Ellis and others around 2012 De Chardin had the scientific creds he was trained as a geologist and paleontologist and worked in China on the then newly discovered Peking Man De Chardin saw The End of Nature coming Bill McKibben 1989 We humans are in control now we are the main geologic agent and if an animal species or a forest survives it s because we allow it to do so We Are Nature frightening as that may beDe Chardin basically lays out the Gaia hypothesis James Lovelock Lynn Margulis Andrew Watson 1989 Organisms don t just evolve in response to their environment but help shape it Writ large the earth is evolving into a self regulating organism The analogy of black and white daisies regulating heat aka Daisyworld is an exampleWhen I was in grad school there was much discussion of General Systems Theory especially Von Bertalanffy s 1968 work of that name All about hierarchy and how the whole is greater than the sum of its parts In particular de Chardin notes the million fold increasing levels of hierarchical complexity from atoms to molecules from molecules to cells from cells to organs from organs to organisms from organisms to brains and from individual human brains to the emerging collective noosphere Some of his thoughts about the rise of the West parallel many of those in Jared Diamond s 1997 work Guns Germs and Steel which also parallels a lot of Ellsworth Huntington s 1945 work Mainsprings of Civilization minus the racism and heavy dose of environmental determinism of Huntington De Chardin also proposes the idea that nothing can evolve that is not incipient in its precedents An inescapable conclusion is that rocks have feelings and molecules have thoughts Naturally a lot of scientists have no use for his work More on that below He also prefigures many modern ideas such as that there can be no such thing as complete scientific objectivity Teilhard s main thesis to the extent that it can be summarized in a couple of sentences is that the divine directed goal of evolution is the creation of a sphere of interconnected human thought that he calls the noosphere Sphere is used in the same sense as atmosphere lithosphere hydrosphere The noosphere is a collective interconnected human psyche and it s a humane human psyche dependent upon interconnectedness and caring for each other Human behaviors such as suicide drugs and isolation are its antithesis So here is a Catholic priest a Jesuit writing all this stuff Yet I do not recall a single mention of the word God or Christ in the body of the work Instead he writes of the Omega Point He does talk about how the work relates to Christian doctrine in a postscript Naturally this did not meet with the approval of the Church De Chardin was banned from publishing his work while he was alive and at times was banned from teaching and from writing at all He had an arrangement with friends to publish his work after his death 1955 so this work was published in France in 1955 and translated into English in 1959 Yet ultimately the work is deeply religious He argues at one point I m paraphrasing don t worry about things like climate change nuclear war or a stray asteroid wiping out civilization CAN T HAPPEN The Purpose of cosmogenesis is noogenesis and the Purpose of noogenesis is Christogenesis And in fact he writes you will have a lot less anxiety if you accept this idea that there is a Purpose to all this The reader can see that in writing such things not to mention rocks and molecules having incipient thoughts and feelings mainstream scientists dismissed him as readily as the Church didI like the fact that de Chardin did not attempt to carefully walk a tightrope between science and religion He said what he had to say and therefore went splat on the sidewalk on both sides of the rope with no apologies Agree disagree this is one of the most thought provoking books I have read Certainly the noosphere is a concept that deserves thought Will we end up like those grade B sci fi movies shown at 300 am brains in jars connected by wires No because with wi fi we won t need wires Every month it seems we read of a new development connecting thoughts to computer devices for those controlling robotic arms for example

In spite of the three star rating I do think this book is absolutely worth reading and reading again Chardin was an ordained Jesuit priest but also a trained paleontologist who worked with the team that discovered the Peking Man fossils so just from those factors alone the book is a must read He offers a picture against both an atheist or on the other side of the spectrum a pantheistic perspective of evolution The coherency of a world with a personalising God is something I do agree with That science and faith do not necessarily conflict with one another is something I also from the limited scope of my search agree with But how he gets there did not leave me convinced From what I understand his main thought goes something like this Evolution has been proven and he accepts it As things have developed they have evolved both radially and interiorly The pressure from the outward expansion created a downward pressure that caused movement to double back upon itself resulting in the interior rise of consciousness and complexity Evolution is goal directed towards an outward movement towards the perfect and at the same time inwardly towards complexity which all culminates in what he calls an Omega Point I confess to not having studied science very much but as far as I know there is not much to back this up He also confesses that the problem of evil poses well a problem but offered no solution to how free willdeterminism and evil play out in his picture His defense for skipping over this was simply that it was too complex to be addressed in a work that was trying to offer a picture of homogeneity At least he is honestUltimately this was a very interesting read and is something I will have to come back to after I learn but for now three stars The Time of Stalin Portrait of a Tyranny in a time of world conflict and to release the spirit of the Earth As Virgil led Dante so Teilhard guides his reader back The Summer Without Men in space–time to experience the birth of our planet as Män som hatar kvinnor it empris.

review Ò eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB Ô Pierre Teilhard de Chardin

Read Le phénomène humain 107 review Ò eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB Ô Pierre Teilhard de Chardin Pierre Teilhard de Chardin Ô 7 Read Ons the human future in its globe and motion then forward through the emergence of life the birth of thought and socialization and the uniue mode of human unfolding as humanity covers the whole planet in an entirely new membrane the Noosphe. Essential reading for anyone interested in evolution theology or philosophy in general I personally approached it interested in its spiritual concepts so I found a fair portion of the middle of the text rather slow and inaccessible due to its focus on the scientific specifics of evolution details that are probably outdated today anyway which doesn t help But there are enough interesting lines images and trains of thought throughout to make the whole read worthwhile and the last third of the book in particular gets into some really interesting if brazenly biased spiritual territoryIn my opinion Teilhard is at his best when he explores overtly the spiritual reality of mankind describing it with a sense of optimism and purpose while couching it in the evolutionary framework that he presents and to be fair that is essentially the crux of the entire book it just gets lost in the mix at times Even when he wears his Christianity on his sleeve which while definitely a flaw in his otherwise fairly comprehensive system of thought is kind of cute it is apparent that he has nothing but the best at heart for his species a sense of spiritual well being and a connection with something greater ie The Omega Point in this case a head scratcher of a notion but it almost seems like one of the reasonable albeit still arbitrary defenses for Jesus as the divine entering into the world that I ve heard Much like Kierkegaard Teilhard what s with these ard guys anyway constructs a wildly intriguing system of ideas around his faith system and in doing so gets at some really important truths while completely missing out on othersI would recommend this book with the ualification that recent integral philosophers present a tenable approach to its key points ie the within of things evolution as increasing consciousness etc and a comprehensive view of evolution in general
