For Lonergan, truly human development takes two complementary ways: the way up and the way down. As dynamic processes, the two ways invite persons to attend to the data, to understand intelligently, to judge correctly, to respond to values, to effect cognitive, moral, and affective self-transcendence. This study examines philosophically how Lonergan’s understanding of these two ways oh human development, operative in Method in Theology, thematic in the post-aim of Insight is to issue in a self-appropriation of one’s own cognitional activities conceived essentially as a development of the subject and in the subject.
