The Teilhard Lexicon

Understanding the Language, Terminology and Vision of the Writings of Pierre Teilhard de Chardin

Author Text to Follow

The Teilhard Lexicon has been written to enable researchers and students to better understand the specialized language of Teilhard’s transdisciplinary approach, which he found himself compelled to develop as a means of expressing that extraordinary vision of a universe in process of convergence towards a cosmic centre of unity he identifies with the Cosmic Christ. All quotations in the Lexicon have been sourced from the French originals. The work includes a full bibliography of Teilhard’s works in French and English.

The Teilhard Lexicon

Select Bibliography

Provides great assistance in deciphering Teilhard’s terminology and interpreting his thought. Extremely friendly to the user.

A new phase in Teilhard studies should soon make its appearance as we understand more clearly the insight into the evolutionary process that he has given us. This new resource will help immensely.
