About the Conference
The Dietrich von Hildebrand Legacy Project is now convening an international conference in Rome for the purpose of initiating the critical reception of Dietrich von Hildebrand's great work, The Nature of Love, published in 2009 for the first time in English translation.
We entitle our conference, The Christian Personalism of Dietrich von Hildebrand: Exploring His Philosophy of Love, because we want our study of his treatise on love to stand in the service of what he once called "the struggle for the person." We want our discussions about love to lead us back to questions about the dignity and destiny of the human person, and especially about the capacity of the human person to encounter the other by making a gift of self to the other. We are organizing the conference on the assumption that one cannot make sense of the human person apart from his or her capacity for loving and being loved.
