CD/mp3 431.  A lecture given at Marquette University in 1965.  Corresponds to CWL4: 232-45.  Sponsored by Cora Twohig-Moengangongo.


This is a recording of the very important lecture ‘Dimensions of Meaning’ delivered at Marquette University on 12 May 1965, in the Distinguished Lecture Series.  The theme is that human reality, the very stuff of human living, is mediated and constituted by meaning.  With language we come to live in a world mediated by meaning.  But there is also the world we make, the transformation of nature and of human reality itself because of acts of meaning.  In the latter transformation the world is not only mediated but also constituted by meaning.  A second major section contrasts classical and modern controls of meaning, beginning with the contrast of scientific ideals.  The upshot is that the classical control has broken down but the modern control has yet to reach its maturity.  The implications for divisions and tension in the Church are drawn in the conclusion.
