Letter of Pierre Teilhard de Chardin to Max Bégouën, from Java where he is in geological excursion with Helmut de Terra, April 5, 1938.
” As I try toe as I am trying to make clear to de Terra, who is gnawing away at the apparent inaction of the Labs, the most urgent work is to preach and develop in oneself a ” third spirit ” […] : to bear what happens, but without giving in to it, protesting, by all one’s conduct, that there is a superior way of being human to everything that is presented to us. It is this new type that each of us must discover, create and express.r, in his office, in his lab : the new type of politician, economist, businessman, researcher. […] Such a movement seems to me invulnerable, even to a war. ”
