Site Update: Teilhard de Chardin Resources

Things are fairly crazy at work and I have not been able to produce as much material for the blog as I would like. I am working on a number of items including a response to Dan Burke (currently at 3,000 words so I have some editing to do) and some book reviews. However, over the past few weeks I have been updating resources on Teilhard de Chardin, which you can find on the Teilhard de Chardin Resources tab and accompanying links.

Writings by Teilhard de Chardin.  Someone (avatar name is Badir) put a lot of effort in digitizing the primary works of Teilhard de Chardin and making them available for free through Community Books. It is an outstanding library that is downloadable in multiple electronic formats. It is a tremendous resource to the best of Teilhard de Chardin’s writings.

Writings About Teilhard de Chardin.  This contains a list of books about the writings of Teilhard de Chardin. I have included links to some of the books, will work on updating more when time permits.

Podcasts About Teilhard de Chardin.  I have recently added this feature. As of now, I have found three really good series of podcasts:

  • One podcast from Catholic Laboratory, which focuses on Teilhard de Chardin’s paleontology contributions.
  • One podcast from OnBeing with interviews by Ursula King, Teilhard de Chardin scholar and biographer; David Sloan Wilson, Professor of Biology and Anthropology; David Sloan Wilson; and Andrew Revkin, Senior Fellow for Environmental Understanding at Pace University.
  • A four podcast series with Bishop Christopher Coyne of Indianapolis and Father Mark Hunt of Holy Family University in Philadelphia on the life and theology of Teilhard de Chardin.

I am always looking for additional resources on Teilhard de Chardin so any and all contributions are welcome.

About William Ockham

I am a father of two with eclectic interests in theology, philosophy and sports. I chose the pseudonym William Ockham in honor of his contributions to philosophy, specifically Occam's Razor, and its contributions to modern scientific theory. My blog ( explores Ignatian Spirituality and the intersection of faith, science and reason through the life and writings of Pierre Teilhard de Chardin (pictured above).

  1. If this is what you do when you are busy at work, I stand in awe of you. Thank you always for your great dedication to this work. Peace and every blessing your way. This post is a treasure of resources!

    • Fran, you are too kind. This is mostly a recycle of items I had previously compiled based on the work of others. I am glad you enjoy the resources. If you find additional ones, please let me know!

  2. Thanks for this great work Willam Ockham. You seems to be a great fan of Teilhard de Chardin. (One of my favorites is the “Process theology” of Teilhard.)
