Title: Scholastic Manuals Lonergan Used
Post by: dnordquest on November 14, 2013, 02:26:37 PM
Is it known what scholastic manual(s) Lonergan used as a student in epistemology?  Is there a work which discusses the manual(s)?  Lonergan remarks somewhere that a manual of the sort gave no account of actual understanding, but merely spoke of things causing concepts which were then compared etc. to produce judgments.

It would be useful to have actual examples of the formulations he was writing against.
