The personalism of John Henry Newman by John F Crosby( )

7 editions published between 2014 and 2016 in English and held by 934 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It has been said that John Henry Newman "stands at the threshold of the new age as a Christian Socrates, the pioneer of a new philosophy of the individual Person and Personal Life." Newman's personalism is found in the way he contrasts the "theological intellect" and the "religious imagination." Newman pleads for the latter when he famously says, in words that John F. Crosby takes as the motto of this book, "I am far from denying the real force of the arguments in proof of a God ... but these do not warm me or enlighten me; they do not take away the winter of my desolation, or make the buds unfold and the leaves grow within me, and my moral being rejoice." In The Personalism of John Henry Newman, Crosby shows the reader how Newman finds the life-giving religious knowledge that he seeks. He explores the "heart" in Newman and explains what Newman was saying when he chose as his cardinal's motto, cor ad cor loquitur (heart speaks to heart). He explains what Newman means in saying that religious truth is transmitted not by argument but by "personal influence." Crosby also examines Newman's personalist account of what it is to think; he explains what it is for a person to think not just by rule but by his "spontaneous living intelligence." Crosby examines the subjectivity of Newman and shows how the modern "turn to the subject" is enacted in Newman. But these personalist aspects of Newman's mind, which connect him with many streams of contemporary thought, are not the whole of Newman; they stand in relation to someone else in Newman, something that Crosby calls Newman's radically theocentric religion. Newman is a modern thinker but not the modernist he is sometimes mistaken for. The inexhaustible plenitude of Newman derives from the union of apparent opposites in him: the union of his teaching on the heart with his theocentric teaching, of the subjectivity of experience with the objectivity of revealed truth. Crosby writes for a broad, non-specialist public just as Newman did. -- from dust jacket
My battle against Hitler : faith, truth, and defiance in the shadow of the Third Reich by Dietrich Von Hildebrand( Book )

4 editions published between 2014 and 2016 in English and held by 401 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"How does a person become Hitler's enemy number one? Not through espionage or violence, it turns out, but by striking fearlessly at the intellectual and spiritual roots of National Socialism. Dietrich von Hildebrand was a German Catholic thinker and teacher who devoted the full force of his intellect to breaking the deadly spell of Nazism that ensnared so many of his beloved countrymen. His story might well have been lost to us were it not for this memoir he penned in the last decades of his life at the request of his wife, Alice von Hildebrand. In My Battle Against Hitler, covering the years from 1921 to 1938, von Hildebrand tells of the scorn and ridicule he endured for sounding the alarm when many still viewed Hitler as a positive and inevitable force. He expresses the sorrow of having to leave behind his home, friends, and family in Germany to conduct his fight against the Nazis from Austria. He recounts how he defiantly challenged Nazism in the public square, prompting the German ambassador in Vienna to describe him to Hitler as 'the architect of the intellectual resistance in Austria.' And in the midst of all the danger he faced, he conveys his unwavering trust in God, even during his harrowing escape from Vienna and his desperate flight across Europe, with the Nazis always just one step behind. Dietrich von Hildebrand belongs to the very earliest anti-Nazi resistance. His public statements led the Nazis to blacklist him already in 1921, long before the horrors of the Third Reich and more than twenty-three years before the famous assassination attempt on Hitler in July 1944. His battle would culminate in the countless articles he published in Vienna, a selection of which are featured in this volume. 'It is an immense privilege,' writes editor John Henry Crosby, founder of the Hildebrand Project, 'to present to the world the shining witness of one man who risked everything to follow his conscience and stand in defiance of tyranny.'"--

The apriori foundations of the civil law : along with the lecture, "concerning phenomenology" by Adolf Reinach( )

12 editions published between 1983 and 2012 in English and German and held by 102 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The phenomenologists were concerned to show that essential structures of being, knowable by rational insight, are found far more abundantly than is commonly thought. In his great monograph Reinach shows that in the civil law, where one usually thinks that there are only legal structures of human devising, there are in fact many essential structures, such as the structure of promising or of owning. These pre-positive structures, which are something different from the moral norms relevant to the positive law, provide the civil law with a foundation that can be known by philosophical insight. Tho
An introduction to personalism by Juan Manuel Burgos( Book )

2 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 92 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Much has been written about the great personalist philosophers of the 20th century - including Jacques Maritain and Emmanuel Mournier, Martin Buber and Emmanuel Levinas, Dietrich von Hildebrand and Edith Stein, Max Scheler and Karol Wojtyla (later Pope John Paul II) - but few books cover the personalist movement as a whole. An Introduction to Personalism fills that gap. Juan Manuel Burgos shows the reader how personalist philosophy was born in response to the tragedies of two World Wars, the Great Depression, and the totalitarian regimes of the 1930s. Through a revitalization of the concept of the person, an array of thinkers developed a philosophy both rooted in the best of the intellectual tradition and capable of dialoguing with contemporary concerns. Burgos then delves into the potent ideas of more than twenty thinkers who have contributed to the growth of personalism, including Romano Guardini, Gabriel Marcel, Xavier Zubiri, and Michael Polanyi. Burgos's encyclopedic knowledge of the movement allows for a concise and well-rounded perspective on each of the personalists studied. An Introduction to Personalism concludes with a synthesis of personalist thought, bringing together the brightest insights of each personalist philosopher into an organic whole. Burgos argues that personalism is not an eclectic hodge-podge, but a full-fledged school of philosophy, and gives a dynamic and rigorous exposition of the key features of the personalist position. Our times are marked by numerous and often contradictory ideas about the human person. An Introduction to Personalism presents an engaging anthropological vision capable of taking the lead in the debate about the meaning of human existence and of winning hearts and minds for the cause of the dignity of every person in the 21st century and beyond. -- Provided by publisher

In his ambitious and comprehensive Aesthetics, now translated into English for the first time, Hildebrand rehabilitates the concept of beauty as an objective rather and purely subjective phenomenon. His systematic account renews the Classical and Christian vision of beauty as a reliable mode of perception that leads humanity toward the true, the good, and ultimately the divine. There is no more important issue in our culture--sacred or secular--than the restoration of beauty. And there is no better place to start this urgent enterprise than Dietrich von Hildebrand's Aesthetics. - Dana Gioia

El personalismo de John Henry Newman by John F Crosby( Book )

1 edition published in 2017 in Spanish and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A través de la razón y la filosofía fue como el beato John Henry Newman llegó al conocimiento religioso que lo convirtió en uno de los grandes apologetas católicos del siglo XX. En este ensayo el prestigioso filósofo Crosby desvela cómo encuentra Newman el vivificante conocimiento religioso que perseguía. Explora su concepto de "corazón" y explica a qué se refiere Newman cuando escoge como lema cardenalicio cor ad cor loquitur (el corazón habla al corazón). Esclarece el significado de lo que quiere decir Newman cuando habla de que la verdad religiosa no se transmite por argumentos, sino por "influjo personal". También se enfrenta a la consideración personalista de Newman sobre lo que significa pensar. Pero estos aspectos personalistas de la mente de Newman, que le conectan con tantas corrientes del pensamiento contemporáneo, no constituyen el entero Newman: todos ellos están en relación con lo que el profesor Crosby denomina el radical teocentrismo religioso del beato inglés. Newman es un pensador moderno pero no el modernista con el que -a veces- fue confundido erróneamente. La inagotable plenitud de Newman deriva de la unión de aparentes opuestos: su enseñanza sobre el corazón unida con el teocentrismo; de la subjetividad de la experiencia con la objetividad de la verdad revelada
