|What||Functional Collaboration in the Academy: Advancing Bernard Lonergan’s Central Achievement|
|When||Monday, 21 July 2014 to Friday, 25 July 2014|
|Where||University of British Columbia, Vancouver, Canada|
ADVANCE NOTICE AND CALL FOR ABSTRACTS
Bernard Lonergan’s Legacy includes fundamental discoveries in economics, as well as his identification of a generalized empirical method for academic work (A Third Collection, p. 141). Both Lonergan’s economics and generalized empirical method are substructures of his later central achievement, functional specialization. Verifiably pre-emergent within theology, philosophy, the sciences and other academic disciplines, functional specialization will be an omni-disciplinary progress-oriented methodology for effective collaboration and Global Care.
Presentations will be in various disciplines, including, but not limited to, theology, philosophy, education, housing, economics, law and science.
The conference will be of special value to graduate students interested in functional specialization.
