The ESMP is glad to support and announce the second annual meeting of the Hildebrand Schülerkreis, which will be held this July 3-8, 2018 in Gaming, Austria.

The purpose of the Schülerkreis, established by the Hildebrand Project in 2017, is to ensure that the tradition of Christian personalism and realist phenomenology as embodied by Dietrich von Hildebrand, Karol Wojtyla, Max Scheler, Edith Stein, and many others has an annual gathering.
