Theme for the 2019 Lonergan Workshop announced!

Fred and Sue Lawrence have announced the theme for the 46th annual Lonergan Workshop, which will take place at Boston College from Sunday, June 16th through Friday, June 21st:

Between Progress and Decline 

The crisis in the world and in the church today challenges us to consider humanity. Its concrete performance as a manifestation of not only human nature but also of human sin, and not only of nature and sin but also of a de facto need of divine grace, not only of a need of grace but also of its reception, of its acceptance or rejection…. It follows that empirical human science and philosophy as existential, cannot analyze successfully the elements in their object without an appeal to theology.(Paraphrase of Bernard Lonergan, Insight, 765)
