CD/mp3 473. A lecture delivered at Thomas More Institute, Montreal, 1968, introducing a course on Modern Consciousness. Sponsored by Prof. Norman Brown.
Lonergan was introduced by R. Eric O’Connor, who situated the lecture in the context of the course. The lecture presents something of what then was Lonergan’s third chapter of Method in Theology, ‘Horizons and Categories.’
The general notion of horizon is presented much as in Method 235-36, but then Lonergan moves to self-transcendence, as partly in Method 104-105, but also as contained in material on subjectivity and objectivity in judging value that is similar to what is found in Method but not exactly the same. The second topic is intentional response, and the relevant pages in Method begin on 30. The third topic is the judgment of value. It corresponds roughly to Method 36-41. And the fourth is faith, corresponding to Method 115-16 but moving to other material on being in love that is not present in Method in precisely the same language. There is a short gap toward the end of the recording, but not much is lost.
