About this product
- DescriptionMartin Buber s philosophy of dialogue sought to express the human experience through the ways in which we encounter and interact with others. His I Thou theory of dialogue and I It theory of mologue expressed ways of understanding one s place in the world in relation to others, objects, and especially God. Buber died in 1965, leaving behind a vast library of writings and ardent students and scholars eager to engage with his ideas. One of the most prominent scholars was Maurice Friedman. Friedman and Buber shared a professional as well as a personal relationship, based on translating, interpreting, and intellectual curiosity. Beginning in the summer of 1950 and ending with Buber s death, this volume takes the reader through Buber s three visits to America, his wife s death, the author s stay in Jerusalem, and the articulation of Buber s culminating philosophy of the interhuman. In tracing this chrology, Friedman draws extensively on his personal collection of letters exchanged with Buber. Intimate and meditative, this book provides an exploration of a deeply intellectual friendship shared between two extraordinary thinkers.
