The Human Phenomenon by the priest, paleontologist, and geologist Pierre Teilhard de Chardin is his book of the Earth, a discovery and an epic journey to open the way out for humanity in a time of world conflict and to release the spirit of the Earth. As Virgil led Dante, so Teilhard guides his reader back in spacetime to experience the birth of our planet as it emprisons the human future in its globe and motion, then forward, through the emergence of life, the birth of thought and socialization, and the unique mode of human unfolding as humanity covers the whole planet in an entirely new membrane, the Noosphere.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"This book has a magic quality you don't find in writing in the science world. This translation will in the future be the basic text for any serious study of Teilhard in the English language." -- Thomas Berry, co-author of The Universe Story. "Sarah Appleton-Weber has gifted English-speaking admirers of Teilhard and his thought with a superb new translation. Readers will find this new translation worth a fresh read. Appleton-Weber's introduction to the work opens to readers, including Teilhard scholars, the meaning and relevance not only of his vision but also of phrases and words that he used to help bring his vision into focus. Her introduction and copies of key diagrams used by Teilhard are of great value and make this new translation critical: it is of substantial value for communicating the vision of Teilhard." -- Zygon
