The Lonergan Review

Cover of The Lonergan Review: The Journal of the Bernard J. Lonergan Institute, Understand What It Is to Understand Vol. X112-2021.The Lonergan Review (TLR) is a scholarly journal of the Bernard J. Lonergan Institute at Seton Hall University. Its mission is to publish historical, interpretive, dialectical and critical research at the intersection of the various academic and professional disciplines and the thought of Bernard Lonergan, particularly his account of explicit self-knowledge and the interdisciplinary possibilities of his generalized empirical method. In doing so, it seeks to foster authentic human cultures of high ideals, open to religion, the Catholic intellectual tradition, and service of the poor. The first issue appeared in Fall 2009. 

The Lonergan Review is a peer-reviewed journal that uses a double-blind review process. Articles must be submitted to [email protected] or via the form below. All submissions must be in .doc or .docx format and prepared for blind review. Authors should include a brief biographical note.   

Submissions must follow A Manual of Style (University of Chicago Press). Submissions in other formats will not be accepted for review and will be returned for correct formatting. References to any of Lonergan’s writings that have appeared in the Collected Works of Bernard Lonergan must cite that edition but may also cite older editions. 

The Lonergan Review is published once a year. Subscriptions are available annually. For those interested in ordering previous issues, please contact our subscription agency, Philosophy Documentation Center at [email protected].
