Author: Lonergan, B.
CD/mp3 481, first lecture in the 1968 Boston College Institute. Sponsored by Vincent Bartolini. The lecture presented most of chapter 1 of Method in Theology. Method is a normative pattern of related and recurrent operations yielding cumulative and progressive results. That pattern is investigated, relying on Insight. Clarifications of intentionality and consciousness are presented. The four levels of intentional consciousness are distinguished and related to one another in a rudimentary way. Self-appropriation is disclosed as a matter of bringing the operations as intentional to bear upon the operations as conscious. The transcendental intentions or notions are distinguished from the categorial determinations. This basic pattern satisfies the definition of a method, and will be called transcendental method, a method that meets the exigencies and exploits the opportunities offered by the human mind in act. The pattern is not subject to basic revision.
