Overview

This is the first book on Buber to address the full scope of his seminal influence for any number of thinkers and fields from philosophy to psychotherapy to literary theory.

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.
