The 25th annual workshop, titled "Letting Ourselves Dream: Anticipating the Future in Light of the Past," was dedicated to Prof. Joseph Flanagan, SJ (Philosophy) for his contributions to the legacy of Fr. Lonergan, his friend and colleague.
As many as 150 scholars from as far away as China and Australia attended the workshop, which organizers said was one of the strongest in the series' history. Lecturers included Benedictine monk and mystic Sebastian Moore, OSB, a former Boston College chaplain; University of Notre Dame theology and philosophy Professor David Burrell, CSC; Joseph Komonchak, acting Religion Department chairman at the Catholic University of America; and Vassar College philosophy Professor Michael McCarthy.
Along with Fr. Flanagan, participating Boston College faculty included Prof. Patrick Byrne (Philosophy), Assoc. Prof. Charles Hefling (Theology) and Prof. Thomas Kohler (Law). Assoc. Prof. Frederick Lawrence (Theology) was director of the event.
