More About Dietrich Von Hildebrand

DIETRICH VON HILDEBRAND (1889-1977), born in Florence, was the son of renowned German sculptor Adolf von Hildebrand. A leading student of the philosophers Edmund Husserl and Max Scheler, he took up the -great questions---about truth, freedom, conscience, community, love, beauty--with a freshness that allowed him to break new ground, especially in ethics, but also in epistemology, social philosophy, and aesthetics. His conversion to Catholicism in 1914 was the decisive turning point of his life and the impetus for important religious works. His opposition to Hitler and Nazism was so outspoken that he was forced to flee Germany in 1933, and later across Europe, finally settling in New York City in 1940, where he taught at Fordham University until 1960. He was the author of dozens of books, both in German and English. He was a major forerunner of Vatican II through his seminal writings on marriage, on Christian philosophy, and on the evil of anti-Semitism.

JOHN HENRY CROSBY (b. 1978), is a translator, writer, musician, and cultural entrepreneur. He is founder and director of the Hildebrand Project, which fosters deep cultural renewal through publications, events, fellowships, and online resources that draw on the continuing vitality of Dietrich von Hildebrand's thought and witness.

Dietrich Von Hildebrand was born in 1889 and died in 1977.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Can't really recommend.  Jul 30, 2007
This is a small, short book which is actually an excerpt from Hildebrand's larger work, "Transformation in Christ." Although this is a Catholic book, I felt it worked well enough for all Christians.

I had difficulty reading and comprehending this text, as it is not common in its speech. Here is an example from page 46: "By virtue of the anthropomorphic conception if the gods, the pattern of earthly existence is projected upon the level of eternity; it is not human life which, in the conspectus of the absolute, acquires a universal and indelible meaning, but inversely, the world of the gods which becomes tinged with the flighty irrelevance of terrestrial life -- hence, the trait of playfulness which, in Homeric antiquity, seems invariably to cling to the image of man, as though he were irrevocably confined in his finiteness." While I'm sure this means something, my head is too busy spinning to figure it out. This is how the entirety of the book reads.

Two words which the author uses frequently are "virtues" and "metaphysical" and I am not well-acquainted with either. I am not a Catholic. Maybe the emphasis on "virtues" is more of a Catholic thing.

While I did find a few things in this book personally helpful, for the most part I found it too dense while also lacking in sufficient elaboration. If you are looking for a book on humility, I would highly recommend "Humility: The Forgotten Virtue" by Wayne A. Mack.
