Essays by Frederick G. Lawrence

fragilityThe Fragility of Consciousness: Faith, Reason, and the Human Good (University of Toronto Press, 2017) is the first published collection of essays by Professor of Theology Frederick G. Lawrence, considered the authoritative interpreter of the work of Bernard Lonergan and an expert in 20th-century continental philosophy and hermeneutics. A celebration of the new book will be held Mar. 24 from 4:00 to 5:30 p.m. in Stokes Hall South, Room 195S. The Fragility of Consciousness contains several of Lawrence’s best known writings as well as unpublished work. His scholarship engages with Heidegger, Gadamer, Habermas, Ricoeur, Strauss, Voegelin, and Benedict XVI, among others. The essays explore various themes, such as the role of religion in a secular age, political theology, economics, neo-Thomism, and Christology.
