Michael Stebbins, Ph.D
(SPOKANE, Wash.) -- Michael Stebbins, Ph.D., director of the Gonzaga Ethics Institute at Gonzaga University, will present the annual Lonergan Lecture at the Lonergan Research Institute in Toronto on Friday, Nov. 2.
Stebbins’ lecture is titled, “From the Academy to the Marketplace of Ideas: Making Lonergan Accessible.” The Lecture and Institute are named for the late Rev. Bernard Lonergan (1904-1984), a Canadian Jesuit, who was among the foremost Catholic philosophers and theologians of the 20th century. Stebbins will deliver a similar talk at the launch of the new Lonergan Centre at St. Paul University in Ottawa on Monday, Nov. 5.
Best known for his groundbreaking books “Insight: A Study of Human Understanding” and “Method in Theology,” Lonergan also made forays into the fields of social theory, education, and macroeconomics. His collected works are being published in 24 volumes by the Lonergan Research Institute.
Stebbins, who holds a doctorate in theology from Boston College (1991), is the author of “The Divine Initiative: Grace, World-Order, and Human Freedom in the Early Writings of Bernard Lonergan” (University of Toronto Press).
