Between man and man by Martin Buber( Book )

50 editions published between 1947 and 2014 in English and German and held by 1,137 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Martin Buber believed that the deepest reality of human life lies in the relationship between one being and another. Between Man and Man is the classic work where he puts this belief into practice, applying it to the concrete problems of contemporary society. Here he tackles subjects as varied as religious ethics, social philosophy, marriage, education, psychology and art. Including some of his most famous writings, such as the masterful 'What is Man?', this enlightening work challenges each reader to reassess their encounter with the world that surrounds them
Good and evil, two interpretations : I. right and wrong ; II. images of good and evil by Martin Buber( Book )

3 editions published between 1953 and 1961 in English and German and held by 1,072 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The two "interpretations" which are united in this volume differ from one another in method and purpose, but they supplement each other to such an extent that I have willingly accepted the suggestion to unite them here in an external way as well. Both are concerned with good and evil, but Right and Wrong is concerned with its place in man's observation of the human world, Images with its place in the personal development of the individual man. The first deals with the apparent contradiction which holds sway in destiny, the second above all with the factual conflict which holds sway in the soul. Here an answer is sought to the question, "Why is evil so powerful?", there to the question, "What is the origin of evil?" Thus one can describe Images of Good and Evil as an interpretation because it proceeds from several Old Israelitic and Old Persian myths. These myths portray in great images the twofold prehistorical origin of that which we call evil and thereby enable the modern thinker to point out what corresponds to this twofoldness in that biographical reality of present-day man which is known to us. Right and Wrong is interpretation in another sense. Here several Psalms are examined to discover how the gradually arising and growing insight into the relation between wrongdoing and true existence is expressed in them. Taken together, the two books are to be regarded as a contribution to the foundation of an ontological ethics."--Foreword, pages [v-vi]

The knowledge of man : selected essays by Martin Buber( Book )

6 editions published between 1965 and 1998 in English and held by 960 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"These essays represent an important and exciting new development in Buber's philosophy of dialogue; they stand as the culmination and crown of his epistemology, his philosophical anthropology, and his ontology. If we must characterize Buber at all, we can best call him a philosophical anthropologist. In doing so, we do not limit the significance of Buber's philosophy to the human, but we recognize that man's access to being, according to Buber, is not through Plato's ideal forms or Heidegger's being that shines forth in the existent, but through the between -- the dialogue between man and the existent over against him." -- Introduction

I and Thou by Martin Buber( Book )

48 editions published between 1937 and 2013 in English and German and held by 734 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Today considered a landmark of twentieth-century intellectual history, I and Thou is also one of the most important books of Western theology. In it, Martin Buber, heavily influenced by the writings of Frederich Nietzsche, united the proto-Existentialists currents of modern German thought with the Judeo-Christian tradition, powerfully updating faith for modern times. Since its first appearance in German in 1923, this slender volume has become one of the epoch-making works of our time. Not only does it present the best thinking of one of the greatest Jewish minds in centuries, but has helped to mold approaches to reconciling God with the workings of the modern world and the consciousness of its inhabitants. This work is the centerpiece of Buber's groundbreaking philosophy. It lays out a view of the world in which human beings can enter into relationships using their innermost and whole being to form true partnerships. These deep forms of rapport contrast with those that spring from the Industrial Revolution, namely the common, but basically unethical, treatment of others as objects for our use and the incorrect view of the universe as merely the object of our senses, experiences. Buber goes on to demonstrate how these interhuman meetings are a reflection of the human meeting with God. For Buber, the essence of biblical religion consists in the fact that -- regardless of the infinite abyss between them -- a dialogue between man and God is possible. Ecumenical in its appeal, I and Thou nevertheless reflects the profound Talmudic tradition from which it has emerged. For Judaism, Buber's writings have been of revolutionary importance. No other writer has so shaken Judaism from parochialism and applied it so relevantly to the problems and concerns of contemporary men. On the other hand, the fundamentalist Protestant movement in this country has appropriated Buber's "I and Thou encounter" as the implicit basis of its doctrine of immediate faith-based salvation. In this light, Martin Buber has been viewed as the Jewish counterpart to Paul Tillich."--Publisher description

Works of love : some Christian reflections in the form of discourses by Søren Kierkegaard( Book )

4 editions published between 1964 and 1970 in English and held by 370 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The various kinds and conditions of love are a common theme for Kierkegaard, beginning with his early Either/Or, through "The Diary of the Seducer" and Judge William's eulogy on married love, to his last work, on the changelessness of God's love. Works of Love, the midpoint in the series, is also the monumental high point, because of its penetrating, illuminating analysis of the forms and sources of love. Love as feeling and mood is distinguished from works of love, love of the lovable from love of the unlovely, preferential love from love as the royal law, love as mutual egotism from triangular love, and erotic love from self-giving love." "This work is marked by Kierkegaard's Socratic awareness of the reader, both as the center of awakened understanding and as the initiator of action. Written to be read aloud, this book conveys a keenness of thought and an insightful, poetic imagination that make such an attentive approach richly rewarding. Works of Love not only serves as an excellent place to begin exploring the writings of Kierkegaard but also rewards many rereadings."--Jacket
