When Ontology Meets Eschatology

It is well known that Philo of Alexandria used Hellenistic philosophy as a framework for his thought, especially Middle Platnoism. This led him to think primarily in ontological terms. However, in the final treatise of his Exposition of the Law, De praemiis, he offered what appears to be an eschatological vision–although the interpretation is disputed. This paper will attempt to understand Philo's eschatological vision by exploring other texts that combine ontology with eschatology.
