In April 2015, Georgetown University, in conjunction with The Teilhard Project, honored Teilhard de Chardin on the occasion of the 60th anniversary of his death, by hosting a seminar and a multi-media presentation of Teilhard’s Mass on the World. A stellar panel of Teilhard scholars engaged in a lively discussion before a full house on “Teilhard de Chardin: His Importance in the 21st Century.”

 I received an e-mail from The Teilhard Project that the video is now available on the Georgetown University website. To access the video, click here.  It is a fantastic discussion and worth viewing.

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).

    Loved that bot mot by Dr. Delio, “The unreflective cyber-life is not worth living.” True, he implicitly predicted cyber-life. Yet, cyber-life needs Teilhard!

    September 1st is the 100th anniversary of Teilhard’s Croix de Guerre. This calls for a celebration.
