THE GENERALIZED EMPIRICAL METHOD (GEM)
THE DISCIPLINES AND PROFESSIONS
"A framework for collaborative creativity"
This bibliography connects practitioners in
the various disciplines and professions at Seton Hall University and elsewhere
with their colleagues throughout the world by way of the Generalized Empirical Method (GEM) as
articulated by Bernard Lonergan. The aim is to enable persons in
the various sciences, scholarly disciplines and professions to focus on their
own areas of expertise as these are connected to broader areas of human
questioning, such as the very meaning of the particular disciplines within the
whole of human questioning and knowing. Our purpose is to link persons who have
written in one area or another – the nature of the natural sciences, for
example – with colleagues who are doing similar research elsewhere.
This bibliography has also been developed through collaboration with the Praxis Program of the Advanced Seminar on Mission, Center for Vocation and Servant Leadership (GEM Fellows Program).

The first section of the
bibliography, GENERAL RESOURCES, contains works by or about Bernard Lonergan
and the Generalized Empirical Method. The second section,
INTERDISCIPLINARY RESOURCES, contains works that link the Generalized Empirical Method with the
various disciplines and professions.
Bernard Lonergan's works
and general resources on the Generalized Empirical Method, such as journals, can be found in the Bernard J. Lonergan Institute at Seton Hall University, Room
429 of Walsh Library. The Institute houses general resources on GEM as well as hard
copies of books and articles that link GEM with specific disciplines and
professions. The physical location of
these resources within the Walsh Library symbolically reaches out to the rest
of Walsh Library holdings and to the whole university.
