PHIL 7772 Insight and Beyond I (Fall: 3 )

Course Description

Bernard Lonergan wrote his major work, Insight, to address what he regarded as the great challenges posed by Modernity: modern natural science, modern historical thought, and the great revolutions in modern philosophy. Insight shares concerns of post-modernism, but departs from its pervasive relativism. This course begins a two-semester project exploring Lonergan's unique invitation to "self-appropriation" as a response to the crises of our times. Students in this course will also contribute to the learning of others. Sessions will be edited, placed online, and shared with the international community of those also wishing to study Insight and Lonergan's later works.
