Collected Works of Bernard Lonergan Philosophical and theological papers 1965 1980

Author: Bernard J. F. Lonergan
Publisher: University of Toronto Press for Lonergan Research Institute of Regis College
ISBN: 0802086381
Release Date: 1988
Genre: Philosophy

A companion to Philosophical and Theological Papers 19581964 (Volume 6 in the Collected Works of Bernard Lonergan series), this anthology contains Lonergan's lectures on philosophy and theology given during the later period of his life, 19651980. These papers document his development in the discipline during the years leading up to the publication of Method in Theology, and beyond to 1980 when he was more engaged in his writings and seminars on macroeconomics. Philosophical and Theological Papers 19651980 is divided into five sections, forming units on the basis of dates. The three central sections are each a set of lectures respectively given at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Gonzaga University in Spokane, and Trinity College (University of Toronto). Although there is some repetition amongst the lecture sets and in relation to other more familiar works, this repetition displays occasional new turns of phrase that the careful reader will note. In at least one instance, familiar material suddenly opens out onto expressions not to be found anywhere else in Lonergan's work. Other very interesting developments regard the movement from speaking of the immutability of dogmas to their permanence of meaning and the permutations among 'real self-transcendence,' 'performative self-transcendence,' and 'moral self-transcendence.'

Lonergan and the Theology of the Future

Author: David M. Hammond
Publisher: Wipf and Stock Publishers
ISBN: 9781498205153
Release Date: 2017-12-13
Genre: Religion

Today a variety of theological approaches offer fresh and enriching insights, yet much of contemporary religious thought can be disorienting for the beginning student of theology. This accessible introduction presents aspects of the thought of Fr. Bernard Lonergan SJ, (1904–1984) in a way that makes his vital contribution to contemporary theology accessible to the beginning student. The author minimizes technical terms and explains basic ideas with user-friendly examples. Rather than a survey of diverse contemporary theological opinions, or a thematic presentation of one topic, the book tries to clear away confusions by focusing on the theologian concerned with those topics. The book will thus encourage creative ways of overcoming some of the unnecessary obstacles for students who want to explore theology today.

Lonergan in the World

Author: James Marsh
Publisher: University of Toronto Press
ISBN: 9781442619142
Release Date: 2014-07-31
Genre: Philosophy

In his philosophical classic Insight, Catholic philosopher and theologian Bernard Lonergan introduced the concept of self-appropriation – the personal search for knowledge of the self, and through that of the world – as the basis for systematic philosophical investigation. In Lonergan in the World, James L. Marsh argues, clearly and passionately, that self-appropriation can serve as the basis for philosophical, ethical, and even political and economic thought. Comparing and applying Lonergan’s principles to major trends in contemporary philosophy, including phenomenology, hermeneutics, postmodernism, analytic philosophy, and Marxism, Marsh uncovers the philosophical and the socio-political implications of Lonergan’s work and its value as the basis for a search for justice and self-understanding. Drawing on Marsh’s more than forty years of studying and teaching Lonergan’s thought, Lonergan in the World is a book that should be read not just by philosophers and theologians, but by anyone interested in the philosophical foundations of a just and authentic life.

A Third Collection

Author: Bernard Lonergan
Publisher: University of Toronto Press
ISBN: 9781487513672
Release Date: 2017-03-17
Genre: Philosophy

A Third Collection, prepared for the Collected Works of Bernard Lonergan by editors Robert M. Doran and John D. Dadosky, is a helpful companion to volumes four and thirteen in the series. The volume contains fifteen papers, written between 1974 and 1982, and includes some of his most important shorter writings such as "Prolegomena to the Study of the Emerging Religious Consciousness of Our Time" and "Natural Right and Historical Mindedness." The relevant archival entries are specified, so that readers can consult them. The papers in this volume rehearse in a new key the themes of a lifetime. Without in any way going back on the major emphases of Lonergan's early work–cognitional theory and then the exploration of a fourth, existential level of consciousness– they are focused more on love and on the movement from above downwards in consciousness. Community is emphasized as the context and the fruit of the emergence of authentic subjects.

A Second Collection

Author: Bernard Lonergan
Publisher: University of Toronto Press
ISBN: 9781487511586
Release Date: 2016-08-04
Genre: Philosophy

For the edition of A Second Collection prepared for the Collected Works of Bernard Lonergan, editors Robert M. Doran and John D. Dadosky have added archival materials directly related to almost every one of the papers, bringing the reader closer to the original compositions. The papers date from 1966 to 1973, and span the most creative period in Lonergan’s development. Two major themes run through these papers: the primacy of the fourth, existential level of human consciousness, and the significance of historical mindedness with all its implications for culture, hermeneutics, and phenomenological thinking. The theme of conversion makes a grand entrance in ‘Theology in Its New Context,’ a paper that charted the course for the unfolding of Method in Theology. This new edition makes extensive use of original manuscripts, variants in drafts of the essays, and hand-written corrections.

Startling strangeness

Author: Richard M. Liddy
Publisher: Univ Pr of Amer
ISBN: 0761836055
Release Date: 2007
Genre: Religion

In the introduction to Insight: A Study of Human Understanding, Bernard Lonergan writes of the "startling strangeness" that overtakes someone who really understands what the act of "insight" is all about. The present work is about that experience in the life of Richard Liddy as he wrestled with Insight in the 1960s. Liddy was Lonergan's student in Rome during the Second Vatican Council (1962-1965) and in this work he recounts his encounter with Lonergan and with Insight. He includes memories of other Lonergan students as well as witnesses to the "startling strangeness" the reading of Insight engenders.

Meaning and History in Systematic Theology

Author: John Daniel Dadosky
ISBN: 0874627451
Release Date: 2009
Genre: Literary Collections

"This Festschrift is written in honor of theologian and philosopher Robert Doran, one of the most creative and important Lonergan scholars working today. His magnum opus, Theology and the Dialectics of History (1990), integrated his reworking of depth psychology into a theory of history that serves as a foundation not only for systematic theology, but also for interdisciplinary collaboration. It relies on Lonergan's seminal contribution to the reversal of the post-Enlightenment crisis of meaning, that is, his emphasis on the subject's intelligent and responsible self-appropriation as the foundation of epistemology, metaphysics, and human collaboration. Doran's achievement is a profound development of this work, and it provides fecund ground that enables Lonergan's legacy to make itself felt across the humanities, the human sciences, and beyond. The range of contributions contained in this volume points to the immense significance of Doran's work, and they cover topics as varied as communication studies, critical-history, depth psychology, pastoral theology, philosophy, religious diversity, and systematic theology. These different concentrations ensure that this collection of essays is of use to readers who are curious about the relevance of Lonergan's critical-realism to a breadth of scholarly disciplines. It is also of acute interest to established scholars who are well aware of the merits of Doran's contributions to Lonergan Studies, and who wish to gain an understanding of the directions in which his work is being both employed and developed."--Publisher's website.
