As The Phenomenon of Man considered man in his natural context, its author here considers him in his supernatural context. Though as he maintained in the earlier volume, man is a phenomenon like countless others in the evolutionary series, he is not only that: he is also unique in it in that he can reflect upon it and thereby not only to an extent control it but recognise it to be part of a larger, non-material process. By transcending the purely experimental, he was able to arrive at the concept of cause and direction - in other words of a purposeful creator, of God. It is in this relationship that the author places him in the present volume.
