Welcome to the LWS blog

Greetings - this blog arose in response to a recent call made by Bob Doran, SJ, for greater collaboration among Lonergan scholars and practitioners in various disciplines. This blog is for those who think and work in analysing and using Bernard Lonergan's thought in a variety of disciplines - especially (but not only) philosophy and theology.

This blog is moderated, so postings and comments will be considered for their elegance, relevance and insightfulness. However, it is planned to be a virtual community with a developing group of contributors over the 2007-08 period.

This blog will get up and running by the fall of of 2007. As it develops, expect more polish and robust dialogue. I hope and expect to see discussions emerge concerning proposals, insights and interpretations made by scholars, students and others from around the world - dealing with any number of problems for which Lonergan's work is relevant.

Stay tuned over the next few weeks & months.

In the meantime, please contribute your suggestions in the comment box below...

Paul Allen, Lonergan Website Administrator;
Assistant Professor, Concordia University,
Department of Theology, Montreal, QC, Canada

For all those who are scholars in Bernard Lonergan.....

I am a student from India studying my masters degree in Philosophy.

I chose to do my dissertation (Final Thesis Paper) on Universalist View of Religions of Bernard Lonergan.

If there is any one who likes to help me in this study, you are most welcomed and appreciated.

What is the contribution of Bernard lonergan to Religious Pluralism? Does he upheld it?
He spoke in favour of various Religions and also in particularly about Christianity - Please send me your views and articles dealing with the above topic....

Great project, good location, and excellent intent. I'm praying it grows, but do you have a plan for coordinating with similar sites?

Glad to see this site is growing. I like the format of posting reasonable essays, but the discussions seems less-directed.

In any case, my original question I will answer (because no-one else offered!) that one site worth linking to this Blog in order to encourage organized discussion is Adrial Fitzgerald's...
