The Phenomenon of Man



"One can walk a mile with
Teilhard. Or, daring to leap as
far as thought cant project, one
can come to stand on the edge
of the cosmos and share his
hope that nothing can be lost."
Sister Zoe Barry was speak-
ing to the third Office of Re-
ligious Affairs "Noon Book Dis-
cussion" in a packed room of
over 200 in the Michigan Union
on Teilhard de j Chardin, the
French Jesuit who was restrict-
ed by his Church from publish-
ing his revolutionary thoughts
about evolution and what it
meant for Christianity. Since
Teilhard's death in 1955 and
the subsequent release of his
manuscripts, he has become
something of a phenomena
himself -this sincere, charm-
ing, simple man who suffered
restriction of his thought, in
Reference and Parallel
Sister Zoe found it impos-
sible to approach the book un-
der discussion - "The Pheio-
menon of Man" -without ref-
erence and parallels to earlier
works. "A focus on 'The Phe-
nomenon of Man' by way of
such works as 'The Divine
Milieu,' 'The Future of Man,'
and 'The Hymn to the Uni-
verse,', may disappoint anyone
who has a nodding acquaint-
ance with the book and who is
after a scientific treatment of
the scientific minutiae behind
his vision.
"Surely Teilhard d e s e r v e s
such treatment," she continued,
"and is receiving i$. However,

he does not deserve to be re-
stricted in test-tube analyses.
"In his own preface he
wrote: 'This book deals with
man solely as a phenomenon;
but it also deals with the whole
phenomenon of man . . . my
only aim in these pages-and
to this aim all my powers are
bent-is to see; that is to say,
to develop a homogeneous and
coherent perspective of our
general experience of man. A
whole which unfolds.'"
A Whole Which Unfolds
T h o u g h Teilhard suffered
one "little death" after another
in restriction, he continued to
write and to think in terms of
,wholeness, continued to see
man not as fragmental, but as
the axis of the Universe. "Not
a static centre of the world-
as he for so long believed him-
self to be-but as the axis and
leading shoot of evolution,
which is something much finer.
"I ask you to share with me
the vision he held, and to sus-
pend for the moment a scrutiny
of the lens through which he
saw," said Sister Zoe. "For the
biologico - pelientologico - an-
thropologico-physical lens is a
technical instrument which can
only be adequately handled by
specialists in the various fields.
"For all who are interested
in the human, in our common
heritage, our present milieu
and our common goal, Teil-
hard's vision is exciting and
Sister Zoe outlined "The
Phenomenon" as a continua-
tion of themes in earlier works.

"He is well aware that he is
trampling through well-kept
gardens. This sense of motion,
of change and progress can be
seen in the first essay in the
earlier collection, 'The Future
of Man.'
"Teilhard's theory-that we
have been moving, are still
moving and will continue until
we reach what he calls the
'Omega Point' - results from
his studies and investigations
in anthropology and paleon-
tology, as well as from his in-
tuition." He visualizes the
emergence of mail from a "gen-
eral groping of the world," and
sees him now, as the controller
of the evolutionary process, di-
recting the unity of mankind.
What happens in the future
then, is our task.
Spiritual and Intellectual
Teilhard's vision was present-
ed as a spiritual as well as an
intellectual construct. Unlike'
his influences, the Bergsonians,
the Existentialists, the Marx-
ists, Teilhard's vision could
suggest more than mere direc-
tion, unity, simple "together-
Sister Zoe ended with a
question to the audience; a
question that had bothered her,
a student of the humanities:
"Which side, scientific or aes-
thetic, was Teilhard on?" One
man replied that he thought
"sides" were contrary to Teil-
hard's concept of wholeness,
but that he was "a poet; a
scientist who uses poetic lan-
guage to express what is be-
yond the language of science."

5G.oldberg Named

WASHINGTON M)-President Lyndon B. Johnson plucked a re-
luctant Justice Arthur J, Goldberg from the relative calm of the
Supreme Court yesterday and thrust him into the maelstrom of
world politics as ambassador to the United Nations.
"I'd ratherthe President hadn't asked me to assume this duty; in

the late Adlai E. Stevenson.

Goldberg takes a $9500 yearly
salary cut in the $30,000 post.
The questions raised most often
in private conversation were: Why
did Goldberg leave a lifetime job
of great power to take a post he
could hold only at the President's
pleasure? How would the Arab
delegations react to U.S. represen-
tation by a Jewish delegate?
Those who know Goldberg ex-
plain his decision by saying he is
a very dedicated man and a man
of action and that for these rea-
sons the UN job appealed to
him. He has long been an ardent
supporter of the world organiza-
Some non-Arab delegates ex-
pressed belief that the Arabs
were going to be unhappy about
Goldberg's appointment, but Arab
diplomats reacted cautiously. Dr.
Izzat Tannous, New York repre-
sentative of the Palestine Liber-
ation Organization, said that if
Goldberg proves to be a Zionist
"it's a very bad choice."
One Arab delegate said the ap-
pointment wouldn't make much
difference because U.S. policies are
made in Washington and not at
the United Nations.

Entremont has been referred to
as "the most interesting and in-
