Transcendental Philosophy and the Study of Religion 5
Archival Number: CD/mp3 485
Author: Lonergan, B.
CD/mp3 485, discussion following second lecture in the 1968 Boston College Institute. Sponsored by Rev. Msgr. Richard M. Liddy. A first set of questions with knowledge one is converted. There is no scientific guarantee. By their fruits you will know them, where charity is primary. A second set is about differentiation human and Christian authenticity. The further authenticity is an actuation of the unrestrictedness of human conscious intentionality. It is not the same as 'attentive, intelligent, reasonable, responsible.' Discussion turns to the relation of general and special categories, which is the relation of the natural to the supernatural. Then there is raised the issue of the question of God as implicit in all other questions. Various differentiations are explored: theory and the aesthetic in particular. The earlier work on the Trinity was the beginning of the process that led to functional specialization. The discussion closes with comments on foundations, the transcultural, and the way in which Lonergan has moved the basic maieutic beyond the Socratic achievement.
