The Process of the Personalisation according to Teilhard de Chardin

Františka Jirousová

According to Teilhard de Chardin, all evolutionary systems differentiate themselves only by their organization into more complex wholes. At the level of humankind this principle is called personalization, i.e. the process of development of a unique human being. Since the evolution proceeds mainly by tentative grasping, on the human level there appear also various kinds of evil, which in fact represents the failure of personalization. The main topic of the paper is to determine the rules which govern the correct progress of personalization in its three phases, including Teilhard’s theory of evil in the evolutionary universe.
