Florian Hild grew up reading and running in the shadow of the wall in Bad Hersfeld, Germany. He came to the United States to read philosophy and run track and field at Ashland University in Ohio. For the last twenty years, he’s been reading and running in Fort Collins, enjoying the conversations about Socrates, Goethe, Austen, et al., as well as the beautiful runs, rides, and swims in the Rocky Mountains. Mr. Hild’s publications range from essays and book reviews on classical education, C.S. Lewis, and Navid Kermani to translations of Karl Jaspers and Hildegard of Bingen.
Mr. Hild and his wife divide their time between Colorado and Germany together while their son Tobias, a 2020 graduate from Loveland Classical’s high school, is serving at West Point.
