The underlying themes of my work

Professor Emeritus Gabriel Moran (1935-), noted American philosopher and educator, visited Australia in the 1980s. I met him at the Catholic Education Office in Leederville, Western Australia. Having read most of his books, particularly his work on revelation, and because I was engaged in formulating a Master's thesis based on his theology of revelation, I asked him why he had focused on this theme. He replied that it was really like a coat hanger. He used divine revelation as a way into developing his understanding of faith and culture and life.
