After a brief description of what the contemporary trans-humanism is, we analyze the use of a trans-humanist-like vocabulary made by Fr. Teilhard de Chardin. After exhibiting a contradiction in Teilhard’s vision of human evolution, we show how his thought contains also some interesting elements (ethics of fraternity, charity and reference to the human person and to an authentic transcendence) which could help us to correct some dangerous drifts of the recent trans-humanist philosophy.
