Lectio author and noted eschatologist Peter C. Phan will present at the American Academy of Religion Annual Meeting in San Diego on Friday, November 21, 2014. Peter will address the “unpublished last chapter” of Raimon Panikkar’s The Rhythm of Being (2010). The presentation will give an overview of Panikkar’s thought on the three themes of “Eschatology,” the Being of Time,” and “the Time of Being” and will explore the reasons why he finds the text as its stands unsatisfactory and whether his apology for taking twenty years to come to the admission of his inability to write anything on eschatological matters is justified.
The presentation is part of the Society for Asian and Comparative Philosophy session in P21.203 from 2 – 6 pm. Professor Phan will have on hand copies of his newest book published by Lectio Publishing, Living Into Death, Dying Into Life: A Christian Theology of Death and Life Eternal available now.
