I will argue that in Method Lonergan escapes moral subjectivism and relativism by seeing moral experience as essentially intersubjective and relative and by elevating it to a transcendental level, through the pivotal experiences of religious and moral conversion. This suggests that ultimate moral judgments are founded on transcendental experiential criteria, by which the limited and relative value judgments reached in the self-correcting process of human learning, described in Insight, can themselves be judged.
