    I would like to know what he thought about original sin?

    I was wondering why Teilhard de Chardin’s book, Building the Earth, is not included in your list of his writing.

    • Thank you for your comment and for your interest. It is a good question. The books on the list are those that have been digitized through the Community Books open source initiative. I have not found “Building the Earth” available yet (although the search and indexing function is far from perfect so if I am wrong, please provide a link and I will include it, as well as any other books I missed).

  5. I am searching for the quote, “By our fidelity we must build – starting with the most natural territory of our own self –
    a work, an opus, into which something enters from all the elements of the earth.
    We make our own soul
    throughout all our earthly days;
    and at the same time we collaborate
    in another work, in another opus,
    which infinitely transcends,
    while at the same time it narrowly determines,
    the perspectives of our individual achievement;
    the completion of the world .”

    Do you know where this is from?

    I’m new to the world of publishing. Just finished a memoir and want to use a couple of Teilhard quotes but don’t know which books they are from so can’t figure out which publisher to contact for permission.
    You say that 21 of his most famous books are available for free through Community Books open source initiative. Does that mean I can quote him without getting permission?

    Thanks for your help,
