The Individuality of Human Persons: A Study in the Ethical Personalism of Max Scheler

Review of Metaphysics 52 (1):21-50 (1998)

John F. Crosby
Franciscan University of Steubenville
In his deep and significant study of the thought of Max Scheler, Hans Urs von Balthasar writes that “the realm of the personal was Scheler’s innermost concern, more important to him than anything else, the sanctuary of his thought.” This is why Scheler again and again aligned himself with personalism in philosophy, as we can see from the introduction to his major work, Formalism in Ethics
