Overview

Martin Buber's classic philosophy of dialogue, I and Thou, is at the core of Kenneth Paul Kramer's scholarly and impressive guide. The three main parts of Kramer's work parallel the three key sections of I and Thou while focusing on Buber's concepts of nature, turning, spirit-becoming-forms, true community, the real I, and the eternal Thou. Kramer also illuminates Buber's two fundamental dialogues: the I-Thou and the I-It. Kramer clarifies, puts into practice, and vigorously affirms the moral validity of Buber's philosophy -- with its extension to love, marriage, the family, the community, and God -- in the conviction that "genuine dialogue" will produce better relations with one another, the world, and God.
