The high school Higher School of Religious Sciences of the University of Navarra (ISCR) has published Antropología filosófica: la persona humana. The volume, written by professors Juan Fernando Sellés and José Manuel Fidalgo, is the twenty-first book in the collection Manuales del ISCR published by EUNSA.

As the authors explain, philosophical anthropology is the knowledge that the human person reaches of himself in a natural way: "A study of the human being must not be satisfied with investigating the elements common to all, but must enter into the most radical part of ourselves: the intimacy of the person, the who we each are".

On the discipline, three dimensions have been highlighted: "The corporeal nature (body), with the human functions and Schools with organic support; the essence (soul), constituted by the perfection of the self and its two higher immaterial Schools -intelligence and will- and the person that each person is, that is, the act of being staff new and unrepeatable. Each person is radically intimate openness (to God, to others, to the world), freedom that is destined, to know staff active and to love staff (acceptance and donation)".

They state that "following in the footsteps of Leonardo Polo, it is an anthropology whose natural research of the person opens up to a constructive dialogue with faith and theology".

Juan Fernando Sellés is Senior Associate Professor of Philosophical Anthropology at the University of Navarra. José Manuel Fidalgo, professor of Dogmatic Theology and Director of the high school Superior of Religious Sciences of the same University.
