Marquette Lonergan Project Spring 2015 Colloquium: Phenomenology and Catholic Philosophy

February 12-13, 2015

The Spring Colloquium will focus on Lonergan’s work as both a theologian and a philosopher. We will host a number of leading phenomenologists to discuss the relationship between phenomenology and Catholic philosophy. In conversation with these scholars, we aim to better understand Lonergan’s role as a pivotal figure in the transition from neo-Thomist philosophies to Continental philosophies as one of the dominant paradigms for Catholic philosophy in American universities. Three panels will address the development of the relationship between phenomenology and Catholic philosophy, its structural and methodological features, and what future it can or should have, respectively. The panels will include presentations by Patrick Byrne (Boston College), Bruce Ellis Benson (Wheaton University), William Desmond (Villanova University/K. U. Leuven) and Marquette’s own Danielle Nussberger.
