The Awards Committee for the Frederick E. Crowe Bursary announces that the 2011 Bursary has been awarded to Mr. Daniel De Haan, a younger Lonergan scholar who is a doctoral student in philosophy at the Center for Thomistic Studies, University of St. Thomas, in Houston, Texas, U.S.A.

The general area of De Haan’s research is philosophical anthropology. One of his special interests is the employment of Lonergan’s accounts of consciousness, insight, and the hierarchy of explanatory genera in order to illuminate such psychosomatic phenomena as addiction. He will use the award to purchase works of Lonergan needed for his research, and to defray the costs of traveling to one or more upcoming Lonergan conferences.

The Awards Committee offers its warm congratulations to Daniel De Haan. It also notes that the deadline for younger scholars to apply for the 2012 Crowe Bursary is 15 December 2012. (For the meaning of “younger scholar” and other details about applying for the Bursary, please click here).
