Insight and Beyond, a two-semester course given at Boston College by Professor Patrick Byrne of the Philosophy Department, is a comprehensive examination of Bernard Lonergan’s magnum opus, Insight: A Study of Human Understanding, as well as certain texts that represent key developments in Lonergan’s thought after the publication of Insight.

To grasp the contemporary issue and to meet its challenge calls for collective effort. It is not the individual but the group that transforms the culture.
