Join us for a special book release event to present and discuss major themes in the Hildebrand's What Is Philosophy?
Though persons have been devalued and commodified in every age, new political and social movements of the last century have subjected man to unheard-of degradation. Much of this degradation has been violent and murderous, but much of it has been the silent and steady degradation of a throw-away culture.
In this seminar, we will learn of the irreducible dignity of the human person; of the vital interplay of freedom and virtue; of the universal call to solidarity among persons; of the stark divide between patriotism and nationalism, and the chasm separating community and mob rule; of the need for proposing, rather than imposing, religious truth; and of the way in which human persons are destined ultimately for communion with God.
The Hildebrand Project is pleased to announce their third annual summer residency program to support MA and PhD students, postdocs, and scholars working on Dietrich von Hildebrand or in conversation with some aspect of his thought.
With the release of our new edition of Hildebrand's Ethics, readers can now discover for themselves why Pope John Paul II called Dietrich von Hildebrand "one of the great ethicists of the twentieth century."
“The heart has its reasons of which reason knows nothing.” – Blaise PascalThe human heart, understood as the center of the emotional life, has often been neglected by philosophers who give an account of the human person. Many think that human dignity arises mainly from the intellect and from the will, and that the heart is of only secondary importance. In fact, some see in the emotions mainly a threat to thinking clearly and to willing resolutely. Our seminar will focus on those philosophers who have resisted this devaluation of the heart.
