This bibliography was maintained from the 1970’s to mid 1990’s. Since then I have not kept a systematic general list of reading. However some essays at have lists of sources. See, particularly, A directory of bibliographies.

This bibliography is not exclusively ‘scholarly’. Non-fiction can be a source of ideas and the ideas can then be subject to critical thought. The emphasis is material, fiction and non-fiction, that has been suggestive to my thought and attitude.

Detailed headings corresponding to those of Evolution and Design have been eliminated. The present format is more useful and accessible

The titles were gathered in a period of time when I read and assimilated much that became second nature. Thus the nature of this collection is not that of an up to date bibliography. Rather, it represents a period of nascent learning

Many of the items are classics and, to that extent, the work does not become out of date

I have continued to absorb information but my recording of sources has ceased to be as meticulous as it used to be. This corresponds to my feeling that I am directly in touch with the nature of being

The present bibliography may be the foundation of future compilations; this will require both excision and addition
