The Personalist Vision of Love and Marriage was the third annual summer seminar of the Hildebrand Legacy Project. The seminar was led by Dr. Jules van Schaijik, cofounder of the Personalist Project, and Dr. Maria Seifert-Wolter of Franciscan University’s campus in Gaming, Austria, with special presentations by Dr. Mark Roberts and Dr. John F. Crosby.
Professor John F. Crosby spoke on the importance of Dietrich von Hildebrand and the rich legacy that he left. He argues that von Hildebrand—original philosopher, transcendent religious writer, heroic anti-Nazi crusader, and ardent lover of beauty—was not just a man for that time, but for our time as well.
Led by one of Dietrich von Hildebrand's former students, this seminar will introduce participants to the major themes of von Hildebrand's philosophical work. Attendees will have the chance to encounter Hildebrand's distinctive phenomenology, his contributions to foundational issues in ethics, philosophical anthropology, and aesthetics, and to enter into the debates between von Hildebrand and his critics.
The 2011 Annual Conference on Christian Philosophy was a two day conference at Franciscan University of Steubenville featuring the early phenomenology of Munich and Göttingen, with a focus on Edith Stein. The keynote speakers were Alice von Hildebrand, Angela Ales Bello, Antonio Calcagno, and Dallas Willard.
The Dietrich von Hildebrand Legacy Project held The Christian Personalism of Dietrich von Hildebrand: Exploring His Philosophy of Love, an international conference in Rome, for the purpose of initiating the critical reception of Dietrich von Hildebrand's great work: The Nature of Love.
