Our friends at the Dietrich von Hildebrand Legacy Project have announced a prepublication offer for the special spring 2013 issue of Quaestiones Disputatae dedicated to von Hildebrand’s work.
This issue of Quaestiones Disputatae, the philosophical journal of Franciscan University, will include fourteen papers taken from the project’s conferences. Among them will be the Orthodox theologian John Zizioulas on “An Ontology of Love: A Patristic Reading of Dietrich von Hildebrand’s The Nature of Love”; philosopher Josef Seifert on “Dietrich von Hildebrand on Benevolence in Love and Friendship”; and literary scholar Brian Sudlow (author of Catholic Literature and Secularization in France and England 1880-1914) on “The Non-Violence of Love: A Hildebrand-Girard Encounter.”
John Henry Crosby, the director of the project, writes in announcing the special issue that
The Legacy Project aims not just to “promote” Hildebrandian ideas but above all to encourage a truly philosophical reception of his work—which is to say, a reception which does not dwell primarily on items of purely scholarly concern but which weighs von Hildebrand’s theses, arguments, and formulations with the central question of philosophy, “Is it true?”
