Teilhard, Francoeur, and the Religion-Science Debates of the Early 1960s
Susan Sack, PhD
Interest in the works of Teilhard de Chardin soared in 1959 following their initial publication. One of the first in the US to grasp the possibilities of his thought was Robert Francoeur. This presentation explores the efforts of Francoeur and several other influential scientists and theologians who used the work of Teilhard to bridge the supposed gaps between religion, science, and daily life.
