This chapter reflects on the possibilities of returning to eschaton. It argues that a fourth reduction — the last and least of returns — might actually lead people back to the eschaton curled at the heart of quotidian existence. It then follows with a sketch of what an eschatological reduction might entail. The eschatological reduction endeavors to amplify the horizons of “theology” and “philosophy” to include neglected possibilities of experiencing divinity and sacredness, alterity and transcendence, ultimacy, and depth. The chapter concludes that the eschatological reduction aims to bring a second sight to bear on the hidden and often neglected truths of first sight. It seeks to offer a form of recognition newer than cognition and older than perception. In doing so, it hopes to serve as a modest guide to terrestrial wisdom.

Keywords:   eschaton, fourth reduction, quotidian existence, divinity, philosophy, theology, wisdom, alterity, transcendence, ultimacy
