Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, geologist, paleontologist and Jesuit priest,
was above all a relentless researcher. He was one of the first to propose
a synthesis of the History of the Universe as it is generally explained
by present-day scientists. The vision he puts forward in his different
writings, particularly in the Phenomenon of Man, is hinged on evolution.
His outstanding concepts include the theory that the earth is enveloped
in a layer of thought, which he calls the "noosphere", and his explanation
of the planetisation phenomenon with which we are faced to-day. Throughout
his career he remained an international scientist in contact with the Museum
díHistoire Naturelle which accommodates his Foundation.
