Author: Lonergan, B.
CD/mp3 344, part 2 of a Thomas More Institute lecture entitled ‘Time and Meaning’ (1962). Corresponds to CWL 6, pp. 108-21. Sponsored by Doug and Mary Hoffman. The recording contains the entire third section of the lecture and a short question-and-answer session. The latter was not transcribed in CWL 6. The third section is entitled ‘The Development of Meaning.’ First, Piaget’s analysis of development is explained, only to give rise to a problem: the grouping of groups of operations has its limitations, in that there are distinct fields that do not group together, distinct types of development. Among these are common sense and theory, and again the relation of either of these to the world of interiority. The negotiation of these differences occurs largely through shifting from one mode of development to another, though the notion of mediation enables one to appreciate and articulate the relationships between the various fields. The sacred and the profane also constitute another such opposition, another limitation to the grouping of groups. The discussion moves next to the notion of the differentiations of consciousness in relation to these different fields or worlds.
