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 (www.teilhard.com) explores Ignatian Spirituality and the intersection of faith, science and reason through the life and writings of Pierre Teilhard de Chardin (pictured above).

  1. I had not read this short book that it contains almost no scientific treatises. It is mainly a spiritual testament to the world of spirit in matter in four short chapters:
    1 The Mass On The World
    2 Christ in the World of Matter
    3 The Spiritual Power of Matter
    4 The Presence of God in the World

    As with many T books, it was available online in PDF
