Teilhard and the Future of Humanity

This chapter discusses the cosmological vision of Pierre Teilhard de Chardin. It states that Teilhard de Chardin's vision helps people to see the universe as an unfolding story and provides a better understanding of relationality and interdependence. His powerful narrative of evolution also provides the basis for an integrated ecological sensibility and his understanding of the role of humans within the context of evolution gives a framework for inspiring human action in various ways. These include suffering and loss, cosmic sense and the zest for life.

Keywords:   Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, cosmological vision, relationality, interdependence, evolution, universe, suffering, loss, cosmic sense, zest for life
