What is man? It is the question in which the human being reveals himself as a problem. The attempt to approach an answer "leads to be alert in its process, historically contextualized, of humanization". In this text, the author approaches the problem of the human being from a philosophical and theological perspective, showing him as part of the framework of the process of cosmic evolution which, having reached consciousness and freedom at the peak of evolution, becomes humanized in a contextualized and plural way. This human being, in its constitutive complexity, is one and multidimensional and, its historicized realization is given in the unfolding of its corporeal-sequential, worldly-historical, racial-intellectual, psycho-affective, intersubjective/social, freedom, ethical-political and transcendent dimensions and; as a spiritual and transcendent being, that is Christian perspective, finds its path in the history of Jesus of Nazareth who from the concrete history traces the path of emancipation and liberation from the victims. The text responds radically to the inter-plur-trans-disciplinary dialogues exercised in the chairs of the Reason and Faith Area of the Salesian Polytechnic University of Ecuador. The author leaves open the challenge of reflection on The human being, an unfinished project.
