The Hildebrand Project is the world’s leading organization dedicated to the presentation and exploration of the thought and witness of Dietrich von Hildebrand. An original philosopher, ardent Christian, fierce foe of Nazism, and fervent champion of beauty, von Hildebrand defends the timeless truths of our Western patrimony while at the same time eagerly receiving and enriching the insights of modernity.
At the heart of our mission is the promotion of the religious, political, and especially the philosophical writings of Dietrich von Hildebrand and other personalist thinkers, such as Karol Wojtyla and Max Scheler. We believe that these authors offer fresh insights into perennial questions about human flourishing and the moral life, the nature of love, the demands of moral witness, Christian faith and practice, and the transformative power of beauty. We seek to bring these ideas into dialogue with contemporary currents of thought, infusing them into the intellectual, artistic, and spiritual bloodstream of our culture.
We fulfill our mission through a portfolio of distinct but complementary initiatives: (1) we translate and publish the works of Dietrich von Hildebrand; (2) we introduce new students and teachers to his writings through educational events and student fellowships; (3) we support and promote new and established scholars working on Hildebrand and personalist philosophy; (4) we invite our audience to become collaborators in our work through our unique Partner Grants program; (5) and we maintain a dynamic website that serves as the international locus for the study of Dietrich von Hildebrand and personalist philosophy.
