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

13 editions published between 1965 and 1998 in English and held by 1,130 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
To deny our nothingness; contemporary images of man by Maurice S Friedman( Book )

27 editions published between 1967 and 1984 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,099 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A fine blend of literary criticism and philosophical analysis, in which the author examines the human image in works by such writers as Malraux, Camus, Aldous Huxley, T.S. Eliot, Kazantzakis, Sartre, Freud, Jung, Hesse, Kafka and Beckett, among others. The author conceives of the human image not as a description or as an ideal but as a direction -- shaping the raw material of the absurd into authentic personal and social existence. It is an integral part of the eternal human attempt to develop a dialogue with other selves, find a meaningful way of life, and realize our own unique potential. The author discusses ten types of contemporary images which significantly influence our personal ethics, deftly exploring their moral consequence and ultimate social implications

Martin Buber and the human sciences by Maurice S Friedman( Book )

12 editions published in 1996 in English and Undetermined and held by 355 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The specific focus of Martin Buber and the Human Sciences is "dialogue" as the foundation of and integrating factor in the human sciences, using dialogue in the special sense which Buber has made famous: mutuality, presentness, openness, meeting the other in his or her uniqueness and not just as a content for one's own thought categories, and knowing as deriving in the first instance from mutual contact rather than knowledge of a subject about an object. By the "human sciences" the authors/editors mean material that can be meaningfully approached in a dialogic way, hence, the humanities, education, psychology, speech communication, anthropology, history, sociology, and economics. The essays in Martin Buber and the Human Sciences demonstrate that thirty years after Buber's death his influence is still resonating in many countries and in many fields."--Jacket
