Lonergan Studies

Described by some as a modern-day Thomas Aquinas, Canadian Jesuit priest Bernard Lonergan (1904-1984) was one of the most important philosophers of the twentieth century. The author of several theological textbooks and a raft of seminal essays exploring everything from macroeconomics to the the architecture of the human mind, Lonergan held appointments at the Pontifical Gregorian University, Regis College, Boston College, and Harvard University. In this series, distinguished scholars from a variety of disciplines unpack Lonergan’s continuing significance, revealing how and why he devoted his life to reconciling science, history, and hermeneutic theory.
