Halifax, Nova Scotia, 2012

The 2012 Lonergan Conference explored “Functional Collaboration in the Emerging Arts and Sciences.”  It included presentations and discussions by McShane on his recent papers concerning empirical science and the arts, “Aesthetic Loneliness and the Heart of Science” and “Liberal Arts as the Core of Future Science,” as well as extended discussions of the Upanishads and Christian theology—all in the larger context of the method of functional collaboration.
