This chapter discusses Pierre Teilhard de Chardin's vision about the future of humanity. It explains that his vision is centered on a Christic perspective that accompanies evolution from the beginning to the end. In explaining his view, he wrote in the singular referring to a single person to differentiate from “massification” or confusion in anonymity, and described a process that brings about “personalization” and respect for each individual.

Keywords: Pierre Teilhard de Chardin; humanity; human future; evolution; Christic perspective; massification; personalization
