Time and Meaning, Part 1

Author: Lonergan, B.
CD/mp3 343, part 1 of a Thomas More Institute lecture entitled ‘Time and Meaning’ (1962). Corresponds to CWL 6, pp. 94-108. Sponsored by Doug and Mary Hoffman. The lecture treats the realm of meaning and the kind of time that is relevant to meaning. It is divided into three major sections: Meaning, Time, and the Development of Meaning. The present recording provides access to the first two. The section entitled ‘Meaning’ treats first what Lonergan here calls ‘varieties of meaning,’ which correspond to what in Method in Theology are the carriers of meaning: intersubjectivity, symbol, incarnate meaning, art, and language. Secondly, this section discusses meaning as constitutive of human living as well as the ontological status of meaning as itself a reality and the ethics of meaning precisely in its constitutive role. The section entitled ‘Time’ distinguishes the Aristotelian notion of time, the Thomist notion of the nunc, and the human sense of time that is closely related to the Thomist notion.
