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 considers whether Lonergan’s claim that his epistemology is intrinsic to all arguments advanced has been shown to be true in the case of the two texts analysed. The arguments advanced by Rahner and Nāgārjuna are then dialectically interrelated according to Lonergan’s categories, and the implications for the Theology of Religions and Comparative Theology are considered.
