This program and all three unedited conversations have wetted my appetite for Teilhard, again. He is a lot of work. I love the story about the 13 year old who met him in the park for walks. That is useful. I have been working on John MacMurray’s writings for a number of years. I think he and Teilhard are on the same wavelength. Here is an excerpt from, REASON AND EMOTION (first published 1935).
“We are so accustomed to think that science is knowledge that we overlook the fact that it pre-supposes knowledge. We have an immediate livingexperience of the world which is both more primitiveand more concrete than any knowledge which is theresult of deliberate reflection. And this knowledge science cannever deny without cutting the ground from underits feet.”
This being ‘said’ MacMurray sees science as the most fully developed of our three major institutions (art and religion are the other two).
A program that includes a John MacMurray scholar might be usefulThank you, David
