    1. Remember the years when philosophers would rave over “symbolic logic,” that genre which attempted to distill questions of meaning into mathematical algorithms, so precise that one’s arguments would not be misconstrued? There are still “symbolic logic” courses and still some advocates of such in university philosophy departments, but it is no longer the rage. In reading Bernard Lonergan’s Method in Theology, one gets the sense that Lonergan would have been somewhat comfortable with th [...]


    2. Bernard Lonergan was a major figure in the development of the Thomas More Institute in Montreal and what would later become Concordia University in Montreal, with both of which institutions I am associated.

Although Lonergan's efforts are sometimes dated by use of modernity's fav [...]

The concept of the General Empirical Method and Functional Specialties offers fertile opportunity for ground-breaking work in each of these fields and certainly beyond!


    5. Tons of food for thought in terms of theology versus religious studies in terms of the methodology (the approach and questions) employed by the respective disciplines. But he goes beyond that to offer an interesting account of human thought, learning, and development.
