Empowering Bernard Lonergans Legacy offers an interdisciplinary approach to Lonergans work. It presents a series of five feedback matrices to situate his work within a historical context. The matrices also serve to establish foundations for an interdisciplinary ethics and a method for interreligious dialogue. Feedback and matrix are key, but previously unstressed, notions in Lonergans work. The books final two collaborative feedback matrices could best be implemented in a proposed international Lonergan association. Raymaker argues that without such an association, Lonergans breakthrough method cannot reach its interdisciplinary and collaborative potential. One of Lonergans most important achievements was his development of foundations for the sciences, ethics, and interreligious dialogue. One can best empower Lonergans legacy through a correct understanding and implementation of how the data of human consciousness affects all human knowledge and activities.
