Theistic Evolution: The Teilhardian Heresy 

Third Edition

The heady amalgam of Science and Christianity posited by Pierre Teilhard de Chardin—which struck the Catholic world like a whirlwind around the time of the Second Vatican Council and continues, however stealthily, to the present day—has rendered Catholics vulnerable to various heretical and heterodox tenets. This ideology clad in scientific garb is what Wolfgang Smith takes to task in the detailed and rigorous argument of this book. In addition to his definitive refutation of Teilhard’s “science-fiction theology,” the author reintroduces vital metaphysical and theological truths of the Greek and Latin Fathers to a contemporary audience.

“Wolfgang Smith is as important a thinker as our times boast.”
Huston Smith, Professor of Philosophy and author of The World’s Religions

About the Author
Wolfgang Smith graduated from Cornell at age eighteen with majors in physics, mathematics, and philosophy. He subsequently contributed a theoretical solution to the re-entry problem for space flight. After taking his doctorate in mathematics at Columbia, he served for thirty years as professor of mathematics at M.I.T., U.C.L.A., and Oregon State University. Smith then devoted himself to correcting the fallacies of scientistic belief, focusing on foundational problems pertaining to quantum theory and visual perception by way of the traditional tripartite cosmology.
