Publisher's Description

Many consider Bernard Lonergan the outstanding Catholic philosopher of the twentieth century, and his Insight: A Study in Human Understanding (1957) is a brilliant but difficult work that has challenged innumerable readers.What Is Lonergan Up to in Insight? is an accessible introduction to the leading ideas of Lonergan's massive and major achievement in which he focuses on the dynamics of scientific method.

Using Plato's Myth of the Cave as the guiding metaphor, Father Tekippe, who studied under Lonergan, introduces readers to the main ideas of Lonergan's magnum opus. He does not comment, summarize, nor substitute for Insight, but instead communicates faithfully Lonergan's own leading inspirations. Having studied Lonergan for thirty years, Father Tekippe brings the reader into the intricacies of the inner mind.

Chapters relate the more abstract theological questions: Knowing and Morality," "Being: The Object of the Pure Desire to Know," "The Idea of God," "The Existence of God," "Reflective Insight," and "Question, Inquiry, and the Heuristic," as well as the practical, everyday inquiries: "Insight in Common Palance," "Insight in Sports," "Insight and the Detective Story," "Insight in Jokes," and "Great Insights in Science."

Undergraduate and graduate students, those in catechetical and ministry schools, and al those interested in Lonergan's theology will appreciate this introduction to one of the most respected and influential works of our time.

Terry J. Tekippe is a priest of the Archdiocese of New Orleans. He studied under Lonergan at the Gregorian University in Rome and has been a Lonergan Fellow at Boston College. He wrote a dissertation on Lonergan in theology (Fordham University) and in philosophy (Tulane University). He has edited the Lonergan Studies Newsletter and Papal Infallibility: An Application of Lonergan's Theological Method (1983). He published Lonergan and Thomas on the Will: An Essay in Interpretation (1993), and his Theology: Love's Question (1991) is an adaption of Lonergan's theological method for beginners.

Editorial Reviews

For those in teaching who are convinced that Lonergan's ideas are of fundamental importance for discussions in theology and philosophy, the sense of frustration at there being so little published which makes his thought accessible to students is inevitable. One must therefore be grateful to Father Terry Tekippe for a book to which he has brought both long acquaintance with Lonergan's thought, and the skills of someone who for a number of years has been passionately committed to sharing Lonergan's insights with others.
Andrew Beards, Ushaw College, Durham, United Kingdom

With lots of examples, stories and dialogues, this book achieves what it purports to do, that is, to introduce readers to Insight in a simple, unpretentious, and yet 'insightful' way. Tekippe never loses sight of his readers, of their likely reactions, difficulties, objections. Tekippe writes with clarity, conviction and humor. This book can be used as a first introduction to some major philosophers, such as Plato, Aristotle, Augustine, Thomas Aquinas, Descartes, [and] Kant. Some questions are wisely left open, as invitations to continue the inquiry.
Louis Roy, O.P., Boston College
