dc.description.abstract This thesis is concerned with clarifying the philosophical concept of horizon. What I will arrive at in this study is a concept of horizon that is rooted in a multifarious understanding of self-consciousness. To support my findings I have revisited selected works by Bernard Lonergan S.J., who articulated a worldview, philosophy of subject, and an account of the cognitional structure within every individual human subject that proves the concept of horizon is one that is subjective, objective and more importantly intersubjective. With the aid of Lonergan’s work, the concept of horizon has been clearly defined as the necessary field in which the subject operates to facilitate a radical transformation of the subject. It will be within this radical transformation that the subject will be motivated to persuade him/herself to do more, to want more, and ultimately opt for what is truly Good, the aim of expanding one’s horizon. en_US
