Lonergan and a "generalized empirical method" (GEM)

Bernard Lonergan [Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy]

Lonergan generalized the notion of data to include the data of consciousness as well as the data of sense. From that compound data, one may ascend through hypothesis to verification of the operations by which humans deal with what is meaningful and what is valuable. Hence, a "generalized empirical method" (GEM).
