Dietrich von Hildebrand: The Phenomenology of Love. Inner Circle Seminar 108 (28 January 2007)

Dietrich von Hildebrand

The Phenomenology of Love

Anthony Stadlen
Inner Circle Seminar No. 108
Sunday 28 January 2007
10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Dietrich von Hildebrand was born a fortnight after Heidegger (12 October 1889) and died eight months after him (26 January 1977), 30 years ago this month. Like Heidegger, he was one of Husserl’s favourite students, a close friend of Scheler, and one of the great original philosophers of the twentieth century. Unlike Heidegger, he bravely opposed the Nazis, and was on their death list. His widow Alice von Hildebrand’s biography of him has the title The Soul of a Lion.
Dietrich von Hildebrand’s profound phenomenology of love is almost unknown to psychotherapists. In this seminar, we critically examine psychological notions of love in the light of his thinking, and explore the implications for psychotherapy.
