Teilhard de Chardin: The Search For The Light In Evolution is a work of non-fiction by author Bernard J Fleury. The book forms Volume three in the Called into Life by the Light Series, and focuses mainly on philosophical issues posited by religion and belief. In his work, Fleury summarizes an accessible formation of the principles of Teilhard de Chardin, whose notion of Purpose Driven Evolution attempts to gel Darwinian thinking and scientific theory with the spiritual, overarching concept of God, the Creator and the Light. Fleury represents Chardin’s philosophy through this metaphor of evolutionary stages, and presents an uplifting message of hope and unity across the universe.
I am not a spiritual person by nature, though I have a keen interest in philosophy, but Bernard J Fleury presented a concept which intrigued me from the first page. Fleury’s retelling of Chardin’s teachings is concise yet emotive, and it’s very clear that the author has a true passion for his subject. Having said that, nowhere in the book did I find a message too pushy or judgmental. Teilhard de Chardin: The Search For The Light In Evolution is a well-balanced philosophical take, in which Fleury explains Chardin’s viewpoint whilst also adding examples of his own from modern scientific thinking to exemplify his ideas. If you’re looking for a thoughtful exploration of Purpose Driven Evolution, or indeed just a brand new way of thinking to stretch your brain muscles, you’ll get a lot out of Teilhard de Chardin. Overall, a fascinating and well-compiled read.
