ABSTRACT. Having in view that ethics is the vehicle that helps us live together in a much better and meaningful way, but that it is also our vehicle to transcendence and the absolute, to that which is greater than ourselves, and that individualism is such a demon that blocks our way apparently so efficiently, one thing one can do is to look at what is opposite to individualism. And the opposite is communion. Communion implies kenosis, it makes room for the other which prepares one for the ultimate meeting with The Totally Other. What is needed is a philosophy of the person, not of the individual, and this philosophy, or theology, or ethics has as a model the divine Trinity, a model of supreme love and inter-personal relationships.

Keywords: time; transcendence; ethics; values; theological perspective
