The triune God : doctrines by Bernard J. F Lonergan( )

3 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 1,260 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Written in Latin for students at the Gregorian University in Rome, Bernard Lonergan's De Deo Trino (The Triune God) is a monumental two-part examination of trinitarian theology published initially in 1961 and again, in revised form, in 1964. The first part, the pars dogmatica, is here translated into English in an edition that includes the original Latin on facing pages. The work begins with the Prolegomena, which traces the dialectical development of trinitarian doctrine by Christian thinkers from the time of the New Testament to the Council of Nicea (AD 325). Following is a discussion of five theses outlining the evolution of the principal features of trinitarian doctrine from the New Testament through the patristic era." "Along with its companion volume on systematics, The Triune God: Doctrines represents the most comprehensive treatment of trinitarian theology in recent centuries. This English translation ensures that Lonergan's masterpiece will at last be available in its entirety to contemporary readers."--Jacket

8 editions published between 2001 and 2013 in English and held by 1,207 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Insight; a study of human understanding by Bernard J. F Lonergan( )

8 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 1,205 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In grounding his study in a thoroughly modern enquiry into the nature of insight or understanding, the author maintains he has chosen about the one point of departure from which it is still reasonable to make such a survey. As he pursues his analysis of the meaning of direct insight, the author draws not only upon the thought of past and present philosophers but also upon an acquaintance with the more recondite but important developments in contemporary mathematical and physical theory, statistical methods and psychological and sociological research. One of the most significant results which emerges from the author's thinking in this book, which even at its most abstract is never obscure, is a fresh and vigorous re-statement in modern terms of a large area of scholastic metaphysics, ethics and psychology
The ontological and psychological constitution of Christ by Bernard J. F Lonergan( )

6 editions published between 2001 and 2009 in English and held by 1,157 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Philosophical and theological papers, 1958-1964 by Bernard J. F Lonergan( )

4 editions published between 1996 and 2009 in English and held by 1,141 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The period during which Bernard Lonergan delivered the eleven lectures in this volume was one of important transition for him: he was moving rapidly toward a new conception of theology and its method; and he was on the verge of what is now recognized as a major breakthrough in his thought on method, the idea that came to him in February 1965 of the eight functional specialities. While the lectures maintain a continuity with Lonergan's previous work, they also reveal new and significant ideas, especially in regard to his drive toward a new conception of theology as a whole, and his particular concern for the relevance of theology to the spiritual life. The lectures here include 'The Redemption,' 'Method in Catholic Theology,' 'The Philosophy of History,' 'The Origins of Christian Realism,' 'Time and Meaning,' 'Consciousness and the Trinity,' 'Exegesis and Dogma,' 'The Mediation of Christ in Prayer,' 'The Analogy of Meaning,' 'Philosophical Positions with Regard to Knowing,' and 'Theology as Christian Phenomenon.' This volume provides a key to understanding the development of Lonergan's philosophical and theological thought, his major influences, and the pivotal moments of transition in the road leading up to Method in Theology and beyond
Grace and freedom: operative grace in the thought of St Thomas Aquinas by Bernard J. F Lonergan( )

3 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 1,135 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Grace and Freedom represents Lonergan's entry into subject matter that would occupy him throughout his lifetime. At the same time it is a manifestation of the thinking that has made him one of the world's foremost Thomist scholars. The volume is in two parts. Part One is a new edition of "Grace and Freedom: Operative Grace in the Thought of St Thomas Aquinas", four articles written by Lonergan in 1941-42, first published in book form in 1971. This edition includes new notes and indices. Part Two is Lonergan's doctoral dissertation, "Gratia Operans", submitted to the Gregorian University, Rome, in 1940. Published here in full for the first time, the dissertation provides important context and background for the articles in the first part. Lonergan's thesis is that, from the sixteenth century onwards, commentators on Thomas Aquinas lacked historical consciousness, raised questions that Thomas had never considered, and obfuscated the issues. Lonergan's achievement consists in having retrieved the actual position of Thomas by adopting a historical approach that has reconstructed his intellectual development on grace. The majority of contemporary theologians now agree with the implementation of the historical method. What Lonergan also adds is a unique diagnosis of the mistakes made by the modern scholastic authors in their treatment of grace. Throughout this work, Lonergan discovers in Thomas a mind in constant development, displaying radical shifts on fundamental questions. Together the two parts not only reveal an essential step in Lonergan's own development, but also make an impressive contribution to Thomist studies

Macroeconomic dynamics : an essay in circulation analysis by Bernard J. F Lonergan( )

4 editions published between 1999 and 2008 in English and held by 937 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Few theologians in history have matched Bernard Lonergan's range of learning. Fewer still have written on the "dismal science" of economics. Rooted so solidly in the concerns of this world, economics is not a discipline we associate with the more rarified pursuit of theology. In this long-awaited volume, Lonergan demonstrates the short-sightedness of this view. This companion volume to For A New Political Economy (Collected Works of Bernard Lonergan, Volume 21) continues the work of bringing together the various elements of Lonergan's economic thought. His economic writings span forty years and represent one of the most important intellectual achievements of the twentieth century. They have previously been inaccessible outside of the Lonergan research community as the majority of them have not been formally published, and exist only as a group of unfinished essays and material for courses on economics taught by Lonergan. Lonergan's economic ideas track a different line of thought from that taken by contemporary economists. Macroeconomic Dynamics: An Essay in Circulation Analysis represents the economic thought of Lonergan at the end of his career. His analysis, while taking a fresh look at fundamental variables, breaks from centralist theory and practice towards a radically democratic perspective on surplus income and non-political control, and explores more fully the ideas introduced in For a New Political Economy. This work will be read not only by economists but also by liberation theologians, political theologians, and others inside and outside of religious organizations interested in social justice issues and alternative approaches to economics
Philosophical and theological papers, 1965-1980 by Bernard J. F Lonergan( )

6 editions published between 1996 and 2008 in English and held by 929 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A companion to Philosophical and Theological Papers 1958-1964 (Volume 6 in the Collected Works of Bernard Lonergan series), this anthology contains Lonergan's lectures on philosophy and theology given during the later period of his life, 1965-1980. These papers document his development in the discipline during the years leading up to the publication of Method in Theology, and beyond to 1980 when he was more engaged in his writings and seminars on macroeconomics. Philosophical and Theological Papers 1965-1980 is divided into five sections, forming units on the basis of dates. The three central sections are each a set of lectures respectively given at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Gonzaga University in Spokane, and Trinity College (University of Toronto). Although there is some repetition amongst the lecture sets and in relation to other more familiar works, this repetition displays occasional new turns of phrase that the careful reader will note. In at least one instance, familiar material suddenly opens out onto expressions not to be found anywhere else in Lonergan's work. Other very interesting developments regard the movement from speaking of the immutability of dogmas to their permanence of meaning and the permutations among 'real self-transcendence, ' 'performative self-transcendence, ' and 'moral self-transcendence.'

Verbum: word and idea in Aquinas by Bernard J. F Lonergan( )

4 editions published between 1997 and 2009 in English and held by 421 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Presents Bernard Lonergan's five "verbum" articles that originally appeared in Theological studies. For Thomist students and scholars this "verbum" study offers a careful appraisal of the Thomist theory of knowledge as well as an introduction to the concepts found in Father Lonergan's "Insight". Since the concept of "verbum" dynamically affects the thought of Aquinas, it is necessary to grasp this concept to understand Thomist metaphysics and rational psychology. Lonergan has carefully analyzed and explicitly outlined "verbum"--An integral part of the Thomist theory of knowledge. "Verbum" is examined as a tool of definition and for its impact on understanding, logical thought procession and related ideas stemming from "verbum". Discusses "the word" and its relation to abstraction. Focusses on St. Thomas' immediate concern in finding in Aristotle the point of insertion for Augustinian thought and in fusing a phenomenology of the subject with a psychology of the soul

The triune God by Bernard J. F Lonergan( )

5 editions published in 2007 in Latin and held by 350 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Buried for more than forty years in a Latin text written for seminarians at the Gregorian University in Rome, Bernard Lonergan's 1964 work on systematic theological, De Deo trino: Pars systematica, is presented here for the first time in a facing-page edition that includes the original Latin along with a precise English translation.
