Martin Buber; the life of dialogue by Maurice S Friedman( Book )

61 editions published between 1955 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 1,942 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Martin Buber: The Life of Dialogue, the first study in any language to provide a complete overview of Buber's thought, remains the definitive guide to the full range of his work and the starting point for all modern Buber scholarship. As well as summarizing Buber's early intellectual development and attitudes - his mysticism, his youthful existentialism, his philosophy of Judaism and religious socialism - it focuses on the two crucial issues of his mature thought: his dialogic or I-Thou philosophy, and his probing of the nature and redemption of evil. As a sensitive, intuitive and perennially fascinating account of one of the twentieth century's great spiritual teachers, and as an influential classic in its own right, Martin Buber: The Life of Dialogue reveals the implications of Buber's thought for theory of knowledge, education, philosophy, myth, history and Judaic and Christian belief. This fully revised and expanded fourth edition includes a new preface from the author, an expanded bibliography incorporating new Buber scholarship, and two new appendices in the form of essays on Buber's influence on Emmanuel Levinas and Mikhail Bakhtin

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

16 editions published between 1965 and 1998 in English and held by 1,134 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 )

28 editions published between 1967 and 1984 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,093 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

Between man and man by Martin Buber( Book )

8 editions published between 1965 and 2006 in English and held by 789 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Scholar, theologian and philosopher, Martin Buber is one of the twentieth century's most influential thinkers. He believed that the deepest reality of human life lies in the relationship between one being and another. Between Man and Man is the 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. --From publisher's description
Meetings by Martin Buber( Book )

15 editions published between 1973 and 2002 in English and German and held by 606 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Meetings sets forth the life of one of the twentieth-century's greatest spiritual philosophers in his own words. A glittering series of reflections and narratives, it seeks not to describe his life in its full entirety, but rather to convey some of his defining moments of uncertainty, revelation and meaning. Recalling the question on the infinity of space and time which nearly drove Buber to suicide at the age of fourteen, his adolescent 'seduction' by Nietzsche's work, his hero-worship of Ferdinand Lassalle and his love of Bach's music, Meetings has no equal as a portrait of

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

12 editions published in 1996 in English and Undetermined and held by 360 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
