This Spring, John Dadosky, professor at Regis College and a Research Scholar of the LRI, published The Eclipse and Recovery of Beauty: A Lonergan Approach (University of Toronto). The book takes up von Balthasar’s contention that a world that has forgotten beauty is doomed to skepticism, mor- al and aesthetic relativism, reli- gious conflicts, and escalating ecological crises. Dadosky draws upon Kierkegaard and Nietzsche to situate the loss, and upon Lonergan to promote a recovery of the transcendental notion of beauty. We warmly congratulate him and look forward to co-sponsoring a book launch with Regis in the Fall.
