    Abstract

    In my dissertation I shall develop a synthetic account of sin that examines and takes seriously the theological anthropology provided by the magisterium and contemporary theologians. I shall also attempt to make this account of sin accessible to the more sceptical reader by drawing on the work of the Canadian philosopher and theologian Bernard Lonergan (1904-84). In his works, especially Insight (1957), Lonergan provides solid foundations for the possibility of sin, ethical knowledge, and human freedom.
