"Teleology" is the branch of philosophy that considers the meaning or purpose of life.The concept might best be summed up in a single phrase: "To What End?"
Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost;No "conclusion," I read that as saying. Certainly one of the comforts of Christianity.
As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
More recently (well, certainly after I read Sartre, in college), I see that this could mean no "purpose," as well.
