Crowe.Comprising twenty-two essays, this volume is divided into two distinct parts. The nine essays that constitute the first part of the book are concerned with Crowes investigation of the meaning and history of Lonergans own writings. The remaining thirteen papers concern Crowes expansion of Lonergans claims by inventively developing and applying them to his own scholarly endeavours. A wide variety of topics is explored in this collection, from Lonergans early academic career and the evolution of his notion of God, to the dynamic of ecclesial learning and the missions of the Trinity. Called by one critic a splendid monument to its authors wisdom, humanity, scholarship and good sense, this classic work provides sharp insights into the work of a profound philosopher and theologian.
