John N.C. Robinson holds a B.A Hons in Theology and Biblical Studies from Trinity College Dublin, and an M.Phil in Ecumenics and a PhD from the internationally known Irish School Ecumenics, Trinity College Dublin. He was vice-chair of the Young Leadership Council of the International Council of Christians and Jews for three years, and chair for a further two years, facilitating interfaith encounter between Jews, Muslims and Christians from Europe, the United States and the Middle East. He is also involved on an ongoing basis with the European Network for Buddhist-Christian Studies, and is a member of a number of international ecumenical and interfaith networks. He is particularly interested in the role of epistemology in interfaith dialogue, liberation theology, and the interaction between theology and gender, particularly in terms of how this affects marginalised communities.

Description

This chapter critically reconstructs the argument advanced by Lonergan in Insight in which he seeks to examine the structure of knowing consisting in the three stages of experience, insight and judgment. His argument is compared with that advanced in Newman’s A Grammar of Assent and preliminary consideration is given to its implications for interfaith dialogue.
