From the PublisherThis book is timely/past due for a current follow up source to identify the influences of this major twentieth-century thinker on his successors. I found the book hard to put down-despite coming across my desk at a busy end of term. Clearly Buber's influence has been acknowledged within individual academic disciplines, clearly as a seminal thinker his influence should be widespread in principle. A current and accessible single volume such as this that demonstrates the breadth of his impact is most welcome and valuable.I have been looking for a work of this sort for some time. I was delighted at the fresh breath presented by so many of the authors.— Elliott M. Levine, University of Winnipeg
"The papers included in this volume attest to the very wide range of human concerns for which the work of Martin Buber continues to have seminal importance and provocative implications. What is most interesting is the extraordinary range of topics addressed in the collection, under the rubric of 'the human sciences.' The elucidation of that term is itself an important contribution, and Friedman's discussion/explanation of the term in his essay is essential."— Donald L. Berry, Colgate University"
