A companion to Philosophical and Theological Papers 1958?1964 (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, 1965?1980. These papers document his development in the discipline during the years leading up to the publication ofMethod in Theology, and beyond to 1980 when he was more engaged in his writings and seminars on macroeconomics.

Philosophical and Theological Papers 1965?1980 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.'

Bernard Lonergan (1904-1984), a professor of theology, taught at Regis College, Harvard University, and Boston College. An established author known for hisInsight and Method in Theology, Lonergan received numerous honorary doctorates, was a Companion of the Order of Canada in 1971 and was named as an original members of the International Theological Commission by Pope Paul VI.

Book News
The second volume devoted to philosophical and theological papers in the series provides students of Lonergan (1904-84) with papers that reveal his later thought and document his development in the two areas leading up to his 1980 Methods in Theology. Some of them were published--indeed some only discovered--posthumously. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
