Overview
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.

Reviews - What do customers think about What Is Lonergan Up to in Insight?: A Primer (Zacchaeus Studies: Theology)?

Awesome book  Nov 26, 2005
I completely agree with the reviewer of 6/14/05. I'm also a high school theology teacher. This book is outstanding - a great introduction to Lonergan. It's also a good overview of some key points in the history of philosophy, and of western culture in general. It's easy to read (though I found the chapter "The Idea of God" hard to follow). Lots of good stuff for teaching, and for self-discovery as well.
 
An Excellent Introduction  Jun 14, 2005
As a religion teacher in a Catholic high school I often find myself trying to present complicated theological or philosophical ideas to my students in a way they can understand. I strongly believe that Lonergan's 'Insight' provides the most adequate understanding of human understanding. Communicating this to my students is always a priority, because an inadequate epistemology and metaphysics can seriously impair our judgment when evaluating truth claims (religious or otherwise).

But it's not always easy to determine how much has to be explained to people without a background in philosophy. So I got this book, hoping it might help me out. Not only did it help me understand how to explain Lonergan to high school students, it helped me understand Lonergan better myself. I wasn't expecting that!

This book is very easy to understand, but I have found that even someone who already has a strong grasp of Lonergan can benefit from it.
