Part 14 - The Philosophy of History of Theodor Haecker

SKU: 4484D-14


Aside from being a unique philosopher, Theodor Haecker was a a great translator of both the Danish thinker, Soren Kierkegaard and of Cardinal John Henry Newman, both of him had a deep impact on his work. It was perhaps his translation of Newman’s Grammar of Assent that most assisted his conversion to Catholicism in 1921. This talk discusses the life of Haecker, the existentialist character of his very subtle thinking, most importantly represented by his Journal in the Night and Virgil, Father of the West, and his personal bravery. Haecker’s firm opposition to Nazism caused him many difficulties in his native Germany. Presented in Gardone, Italy in July of 2018.
