Transcendental Philosophy and the Study of Religion
Archival Number: CD/mp3 494
Author: Lonergan, B.
CD/mp3 494, discussion following the seventh lecture in the 1968 Boston College Institute. Sponsored by Carlo Maria Cardinal Martini. In response to a first question, Lonergan distinguishes religious discourse about God from philosophic discourse about God. A couple of questions follow about the relation between successive higher viewpoints in Insight and the sublations of the conversions. Higher viewpoints are about insights, whereas the conversions have to do with a fuller self-transcendence. In response to questions about other cultures and other religions, Lonergan makes it clear that they should all have a part in the dialectic that he is proposing. The major point for Christians is to understand the others. Other questions have to do with social insight, common sense, and the disparateness of what Lonergan has been talking about. In response to the last question, he indicates that these chapters are filling in some material that was not covered in Insight.
