But God also acts efficiently, causing every cause and acting in every action. A piece of the puzzle that is still missing to me, at least explicitly, is how Heaps understands his Aristotelain-Lonergan-dialectic-as-method to be ontologically grounded.

His health, though, continued to decline, leading to multiple interventions by his erstwhile student and lifelong friend Hans Urs von Balthasarwho in brought him to Switzerland for the purposes of convalescence. Seventh, Przywara fails to distinguish proper from improper analogy, a distinction that divides analogy of proportionality. On the political front Przywara preached against the Nazis, [2] viewing the Nazi regime as a “distortion of the Christian imperium of the past.
