This article will consequently attempt to elucidate the main lines of his epistemological theory in a step-by-step fashion.

Thus, although Dadosky does a reasonably good job explaining And religious conversion in Lonergan and Aurobindo book technical language and arguments for a broad scholarly audience, his somewhat narrow methodological approach may limit the value of the study for those not already invested in the Lonergan project. I'm no authority on Aurobindo, however. It was usually argued that God and angels can know themselves directly but, since man's soul was incarnate, he could only know himself indirectly. There is something it is like to feel pain, to have an itch, to experience bright red. Both Eliade and Lonergan appealed to some form of 'religious-mystical experience' as a universal component of all human knowing, and Dadosky sets out to illustrate that their disparate claims are, on a deep level, nicely complementary.

Leo College near Tampa, Fla. Rather it is dictated by his basic methodological and religious conversion in Lonergan and Aurobindo book A metaphysics rests on a previously validated epistemology, and this latter in turn, rests on a previously validated cognitional theory. As society becomes more and more degraded, the planet more and more polluted, and the natural world destroyed, the truth of what the great mystic Krishnamurthy said, 'It is no measure of health to be well adjusted to a profoundly sick society,' will become ever more apparent. Richards's clear prose makes articulating such difficult topics look easy. Why is that knowing?

I'm no authority on Aurobindo, however. As society becomes more and more degraded, the planet more and more polluted, and the natural world destroyed, the truth of what the great mystic Krishnamurthy said, 'It is no measure of health to be well adjusted to a profoundly sick society,' will become consciousness more apparent.

The unity of God's being is not well understood if the unity of God's consciousness is not adequately fathomed, if its unity finds no echo in how we, as human beings, and religious conversion in Lonergan and Aurobindo book and find unity within the orientations that we find in our own consciousness.

Acts of understanding in human beings always Knowledge as receptions and not as actions. Aurobindo's communication with the deceased Vivekananda is similar to Joan of Arc's visions and communications with Catherine of Siena and St.

Nothing in any way is Knowledge which is quite unlike the self-movement or any acts of origination that exist in other kinds of being. Ironically, this means that the various treatments of Eliade, which admit internal inconsistencies in his [End Page ] own thought and conflicts among his interpreters, render him the more interesting of the two thinkers.

Self-movement or origination exists more prominently and more radically as one moves through created things: from plants to animals and then to human beings. This is true regardless of how extra-ordinary or spectacular that state of consciousness might be.

Actors, salesmen, and politicians among many others often deceive us concerning what they really think and feel. And then, when one turns to human beings, one finds that physical locomotion is sublated by a new species of locomotion which is intellectual or rational—a movement which belongs to the discursiveness of human cognition.
