With the encouragement of graduate students in the Philosophy and Theology Departments, the Marquette Lonergan Project sponsorfed a colloquium on March 1-2, "Lonergan, Philosophy, and Theology." The colloquium was aimed at fostering dialogue between the work of Bernard Lonergan and philosophical figures and issues that are important in contemporary theology. Hegel, Heidegger, and Habermas were chosen as figures to be engaged. We present here the proceedings of this very successful conference. The entire conference is presented here in mp3 audio format and most of the proceedings also in PDF document format. More PDF files will be added later.
