Fellows of the Woodstock Theological Center, October 2011, The Realms of Desire: An Introduction to the Thought of Bernard Lonergan

For decades, the thought of Bernard Lonergan has provided the methodological foundation that undergirds all the research of the Woodstock Theological Center at Georgetown University. Woodstock’s Research Fellows are unified in their commitment to carrying out “theological reflection on the human problems of today”; but they come from diverse backgrounds, and are exploring topics as varied as economic globalization, immigration, business ethics, science & religion, education and urban issues, ecclesiology, interreligious dialogue, and the role of faith in the public sphere.

Where can scholars from such diverse fields find a common language that allows them to see their disciplines not as isolated silos of information, but simply as different facets of a larger, unfolding truth that encompasses all our knowledge of God, Creation, and humankind?

We have found the theological methodology of Bernard Lonergan invaluable, in providing just that sort of conceptual ‘common ground’ for all of Woodstock’s projects. In fact, we have made the exploration of Lonergan’s methodology (and adaptation of it for Woodstock’s purposes) an ongoing, long-term initiative in which all the Center’s Research Fellows participate, through our regular theological reflection seminar.

In 2007, the fruit of years’ worth of seminar conversations appeared in the form of our book, The Dynamism of Desire: Bernard J. F. Lonergan on the Spiritual Exercises of Saint Ignatius of Loyola. Our seminar conversations during the following years have now yielded the new text that we are delighted to present here, in partnership with Marquette University and its groundbreaking efforts to make Lonergan’s thought accessible online.

This work represents a collaborative effort of Woodstock’s Research Fellows, whose thoughts and reflections appear throughout the text, and so greatly enrich it. Those of us who played a role in producing and refining the text found the process immensely meaningful; and we hope that in reading the text, you and scholars all around the world will find it equally valuable. We are happy to be able to share it with you.
