Engaging the Thought of Bernard Lonergan

Description

Philosophically, the goal of this course is to show how an exploration of human intentionality, namely of the human spirit, in its cognitive and affective dimensions, can yield an epistemology and a metaphysics that may be characterized as critical realism.

Theologically, the goal is to show that an exploration of religious, moral and intellectual conversion can ground a rigorous and fruitful reflection on Christian faith. Through the examination of Louis Roy’s recent book on Lonergan and of excerpts from Lonergan’s writings, problems such as historical consciousness, authenticity, meaning, truth and pluralism will be discussed.
