Teilhard and the Future of Humanity

Michel Camdessus

Fordham University Press

This chapter discusses globalization in relation to Pierre Teilhard de Chardin's view on the future of humanity. In answering the question concerning the unification of humanity through faith and action, Teilhard de Chardin revealed an image of Christian perfection of the human effort. He also highlighted the importance of the divinations of actions and passivities and how these passivities can be converted into positive precious contributions leading to the fulfillment of creation.

Keywords:   Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, globalization, humanity, human future, faith, action, passivities, Christian perfection, creation
