Collection Description

Biographical Note

Beatrice Bruteau was born on July 25, 1930 in Evanston, Illinois. She was one of the first women accepted into Fordham University’s graduate program in philosophy where she earned a doctor in philosophy degree in 1954. She also studied Vedanta, Catholic Christianity, and evolutionary consciousness. Bruteau married James Somerville, a professor at Fordham, and together, they founded the Schola Comtemplatonis. She was also one of the founders for American Teilhard Association in 1967. She is one of the first few who participated in East-West dialogue, as well as inter-spirituality.

During her life, Bruteau had published twelve books and over one hundred articles, including Radical Optimism (1993) and God’s Ecstasy: The Creation of a Self-Creating World (1997). She served as a co-editor and contributor to the journal, American Vedantist, from 1995 to 2007, and Managing Editor of International Philosophical Quarterly. Near the final stages of her life, Bruteau was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease. On November 16, 2014, Bruteau died at the age of 84, and a Memorial Service for her was conducted at Knollwood Baptist Church on November 24, 2014.
