Episode 10: Eschatological Fixation

Literally Everything by Max Staley and Ethan Pack

Episode notes

Max and Ethan discuss the history of apocalyptic thought, from its roots in post-exilic Hebrew literature, to its central place in early Christian thought, and finally its secularized modern form. To what extent is our understanding of contemporary crises shaped by religious ideas from thousands of years ago. We use climate change as an example, because we recorded this in February! Not a single mention of COVID 19 in the entire episode. Oops! Send any feedback to literallyeverythingpod@gmail.com
