[REVIEW] Patrick Riordan - - Heythrop Journal 51 (2) This book is creative and important both as a demonstration of the pastoral fruitfulness of Lonergan's grounding of theological foundations in conversion and in the orientation it provides for novice directors in setting up concrete, highly fruitful directives and specific goals for the realization of maximally effective novitiate programs.

    Summary: A general introduction to the various contexts or stages in the development of Bernard Lonergan's thought. Specifically, it is an hermeneutical investigation of his notion of conversion as foundational for contemporary theological method. The two books which marked this phase of Lonergan's career are Verbum and Insight. It is found that judgment is the critical ground for all knowledge, implicitly also for theological knowledge. Further, knowledge is a compound of experience, understanding and judgment. The third chapter investigates what Lonergan means by Moral conversion.

Introduction We will begin with reading Bernard Lonergan from his book Method in Theology and Msgr. Richard Liddy’s essay explaining Lonergan’s views on conversion.

Lonergan’s explanation discusses layers or levels of conversion: intellectual, moral, religious. This book is creative and important both as a demonstration of the pastoral fruitfulness of Lonergan's grounding of theological foundations in conversion and in the orientation it provides for novice directors in setting up concrete, highly fruitful directives and specific goals for the realization of maximally effective novitiate programs.» (Dr.

Bernard Tyrrell, S.J., Gonzaga University)Author: Mary Kay Kinberger. The process of human transformation is complex and ongoing. This book presents a framework for understanding human transformation through the insights of Bernard Lonergan.

Pickwick Publications has just published Conversion as Transformation: Lonergan, Mentors and Cinema by Dominic Arcamone, MTh, MA DMin, PhD. From the author: “Conversion as Transformation: Lonergan, Mentors and Cinema.” The book’s purpose is to open a conversation and provide a framework for human transformation toward authenticity which is so much needed in today’s political.

For Lonergan, intellectual conversion is correlated with the person recognizing himself as a “knower,” that is, not merely a person that experiences reality but, through this three-part process, discovers the meaning of reality.

Using Aristotle to understand reality. Besides Lonergan and Fr. Spitzer, other writers have delved into the topics of conversion, such as C.S. Lewis and Karol Wojtyla, who both wrote on intellectual, spiritual, and moral topics.

As pointed out, intellectual conversion helps in our knowledge of God, spiritual conversion strengthens our love for God, and moral conversion enables us to.

Conversion for Lonergan takes three forms, the same three forms as are mentioned in the title of the lecture on self-transcendence: intellectual, moral, and religious. From a causal point of view, he says, the first and most basic form is what he calls religious conversion, the second is moral conversion, and the third is intellectual conversion.

Spurred on by the need to examine this question in the light of her own experience as a novice director, Mary Kay Kinberger explores the importance of grounding religious formation in a theological foundation and proposes Bernard Lonergan's theology of conversion as one possible foundation.

For Lonergan, you will recall, conversion is threefold: religious, moral and intellectual. Scholars working within these functional specialties should be in dialogue with each other. Lonergan's turn to the subject more radically breaks the lure of certainty and reveals Lonergan, not Rorty, as the integral postmodern thinker.

For Lonergan, conversion is not a mindless surrendering of one's rational faculties to the dogmatic pronouncements of some organization, whether religious, political or financial. Rather, as McCarthy shows, "conversion" in Lonergan's sense goes back to the root meaning of periagoge as Plato portrays it in the Republic.

CHAPTER SEVEN: LONERGAN'S INTELLECTUAL CONVERSION In the Preface to Insight Lonergan writes of the ideal detective story in which the reader is presented with all the clues yet fails to spot the criminal.
