Evolution’s God?
Teilhard de Chardin and the Varieties of Process Theology
Donald Wayne Viney, PhD
Professor of Philosophy
Pittsburg State University, Pittsburg, KS
November 11, 2020
7:00 pm – 8:30 pm EST

Summary: In 1953, Teilhard asked, “Who at last will give evolution its God?” His own endeavor to answer that question often bears striking similarities to the process theism of his contemporaries, Alfred North Whitehead and Charles Hartshorne. Yet, the differences can also be striking. All three are rightly classified as promoting versions of process theology, but they show by their divergences that process thought, especially process theism, is far from yielding a monolithic viewpoint on the theistic question.
