As we could reach no agreed solution, we left the title in French. As a result of this, it was decided to retain the word milieu throughout the text also. Readers are asked to understand this word in the precise French connotation in which it was used by the author. BERNARD WALL General Editor of the Works of Teilhard de Chardin. ...
