Pierre Teilhard de Chardin
Pierre Teilhard de Chardin SJ (French: [pjɛʁ tejaʁ də ʃaʁdɛ̃]; May 1, 1881 – April 10, 1955) was a French philosopher and Jesuit priest who trained as a paleontologist and geologist and took part in the discovery of Peking Man. Teilhard conceived the idea of the Omega Point (a maximum level of complexity and consciousness towards which he believed the universe was evolving) and developed Vladimir Vernadsky's concept of noosphere. Teilhard de Chardin has two comprehensive works. First, The Phenomenon of Man, sets forth a sweeping account of the unfolding of the cosmos and the evolution of matter to humanity to ultimately a reunion with Christ. Following the leads of St. Ambrose and St. The second comprehensive work of Teilhard de Chardin is The Divine Milieu, in which he attempted to do two things. Some of Teilhard de Chardin's ideas came into conflict with certain officials in the Roman Curia and in his own Jesuit order. Life[edit] Early years[edit] Academic career[edit] Paleontology[edit]

Nonzero: The Logic of Human Destiny Thesis[edit] The principal argument of Nonzero is to demonstrate that natural selection results in increasing complexity within the world and greater rewards for cooperation. Since, as Wright puts it, the realization of such prospects is dependent upon increased levels of globalization, communication, cooperation, and trust, what is thought of as human intelligence is really just a long step in an evolutionary process of organisms (as well as their networks and individual parts) getting better at processing information.[1]

Creative Evolution (book) Creative Evolution (French: L'Évolution créatrice) is a 1907 book by French philosopher Henri Bergson. Its English translation appeared in 1911. The book provides an alternate explanation for Darwin's mechanism of evolution, suggesting that evolution is motivated by an élan vital, a "vital impetus" that can also be understood as humanity's natural creative impulse. The book was very popular in the early decades of the twentieth century, before the Neodarwinian synthesis was developed.[citation needed] Peter Sloterdijk Peter Sloterdijk (German: [ˈsloːtɐˌdaɪk]; born June 26, 1947) is a German philosopher, cultural theorist, television host and columnist.
