This study provides an entry-level introduction to the philosophical thought of Bernard J. F. Lonergan, in particular, to Lonergan's monumental and difficult book, Insight. It also provides a general introduction to philosophy through the medium of Lonergan's thought. Basic philosophical problems are presented and, following Lonergan, responses are made to each problem under the two headings of Position and Counter-Position. After a brief exposition of the problem, Lonergan's view is put forth as the Position, while differing or opposing views appear as Counter-Positions, a problematic and dialectical approach that mirrors Lonergan's own.
