This interview, held short months before the death of Robert Doran, gives a rare insight into the life and times of Fr. Bob. It explains in his own words the background to his reading and interpretation of Bernard Lonergan, especially his inclusion of psychic conversion to Lonergan's intellectual, moral, and religious conversion. It tells the story of Fr. Bob's ministry among people with HIV/AIDS in Toronto, Canada, his leadership of the Lonergan Research Institute in Toronto, his movement back to Marquette in 2006, his founding of the Marquette Lonergan Project and the setting up of Lonergan Resource, a digital platform that made Lonergan's archival papers available to people all over the world. Edited in the format of Bernard Lonergan's Caring about Meaning, the book allows Fr. Bob to express himself more than ever before.
