Martin Buber's classic philosophy of dialogue, I and Thou, is at the core of Kenneth Paul Kramer's scholarly and impressive Martin Buber's I and Thou: Practicing Living Dialogue. In three main parts, paralleling the three of I and Thou, and focusing upon Buber's key concepts such as "nature," "spirit becoming forms," "true community," the "real I," the "eternal Thou," "turning," and the two fundamental dialogues (I-Thou and I-It), the book 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 effect better relations with one another, the world and God. Well-researched, and replete with a glossary of Buberian terms, practice exercises for true dialoguing, and discussion questions, Martin Buber's I and Thou emerges as an invaluable guide to I and Thou, which also includes a foreword by noted Buber scholar and biographer Maurice Friedman.
Accentuates and clarifies the core teachings of Martin Buber's classic I and Thou and offers practice exercises designed to deepen and humanize the quality of interpersonal dialogue.
