Lonergan, Metaphysics and Method: Some Questions

"Lonergan, Metaphysics and Method: Some Questions" begins with an examination of Bernard Lonergan's notion of intellectual conversion, and whether it needs further clarification. This provides the introduction for an exploration of Lonergan's approach to metaphysics, and how it relates to the question of philosophical method.

This book is made up of two essays. The first appears as Chapter One, and explores Bernard Lonergan’s notion of intellectual conversion. This provides an introduction to the second essay, which appears as Chapter Two, and considers Lonergan’s earlier focus on metaphysics and his shift to a later focus on method.

These essays were originally written as part of a course of study, but it seemed worthwhile to put them in published form. I hope this will contribute something to the ongoing study of Lonergan’s thought.
