        Bernard J. Lonergan        
Summer 2011 marked the launch of the Bernard J. Lonergan Institute’s Summer Fellowship program. The first Summer Fellow, Gregory Floyd, is a Ph. D. candidate at Boston College working in Contemporary Philosophy of Religion and Lonergan Studies. He is interested in the possibility and nature of philosophic discourse on God. During the 2011 Summer Fellowship, Floyd researched an evolution in Lonergan’s thinking regarding the import of phenomenology as a philosophical method.

The Lonergan Summer Fellowship at Seton Hall University is an opportunity for young scholars to devote a portion of the Summer months to the study and advancement of the thought of Bernard Lonergan through an affiliation with the Lonergan Institute on campus. Each year, the Lonergan Summer Fellow is awarded a stipend and assists in the day-to-day academic and administrative tasks of the Center. Included among these are the editing and production of the annual Lonergan Review, a peer reviewed and internationally acclaimed academic journal. Additionally, Lonergan Summer Fellows also occasionally facilitate small Summer workshops for others interested in Lonergan’s thought. Finally, as part of the Fellowship, a significant portion of time is allotted to Lonergan Summer Fellows to devote to their own independent research and scholarship, for which they have access to the bibliographic and faculty resources available through the institute.
