The Noosphere


Click Here

Article reads: The Noosphere can be seen as the “sphere of human thought” being derived from the Greek vou? (“nous”) meaning “mind” in the style of “atmosphere” and “biosphere”. In the original works of Teilhard de Chardin as well as Vladimir Vernadsky, the Noosphere is the third in a succession of phases of development of the Earth, after the Geosphere — inanimate matter — and the Biosphere — biological life. Just as the emergence of life fundamentally transformed the Geosphere, the emergence of collective human cognition fundamentally transforms the Biosphere.
