Teilhard and the Future of Humanity

Jean Boissonnat

Fordham University Press

This chapter discusses the historical context of Pierre Teilhard de Chardin's view on globalization. It explains that Teilhard de Chardin considers globalization as a concept that includes not only an evolution of economic life, but also evolution itself, and he believes that it has a universal destination that goes well beyond the limits of the planet. His fundamental intuition is that the creation of the world was not finished and it is developing according to certain laws of increasing convergence and growing consciousness.

Keywords:   Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, globalization, evolution, economic life, convergence, consciousness
