Human Existence as Home Coming – An Approach in Reflective Phenomenology
This book is a reflective journey of thought on human existence.Thisthought is unfolded in the journey and takes place along with that of the thinker.Hence there is a ‘personal touch’ in the emergence and development of the thought in this book. The thought is presented as a journey of home–coming, and this journey passes through the various dimensions of human existence into the wider horizon of a cosmic home with a realization that the journey cannot be stopped, but hasto be continued.
I was born on 2nd July 1946 at Kuravilangad (Kerala, India), and I belong to the Order of Friars Minor Capuchins (OFMCap). I had my higher studies (M.Ph.) at JDV, Pune, and M.A. & Ph.D. at the Catholic University of Louvain (Belgium). I was a resident member of the staff at Calvary Philosophical College, Trichur (1976-79, 1985-90), and since 1990 professor of philosophy at Vijnananilayam (Janampet, Eluru, A.P.). I have served as Rector of Vianney College, President of Vijnananilayam, Secretary and President of the ACPI. Being the Editor-in-Chief of ACPI Encyclopedia of Philosophy (2010) and being honoured with a Festschrift (2012) were two of the recent events of academic importance.
