About the Author

Martin Buber (1878-1965) was a prolific author, scholar, literary translator, and political activist whose writings--mostly in German and Hebrew--ranged from Jewish mysticism to social philosophy, biblical studies, religious phenomenology, philosophical anthropology, education, politics, and art. Upon his emigration from Nazi Germany to Palestine in 1938, he assumed a professorship in social philosophy at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. Until his death in Jerusalem, he was an unflagging advocate on Arab-Jewish fraternity and rapprochement. Buber was recurrently nominated for a Nobel Prize in literature and in Peace.


"In this time of social media and value conflicts of every kind, the hundredth anniversary of I and Thou comes at an opportune moment, laying out once again Buber's heartfelt vision of the dialogical life. In lapidary prose, Buber eloquently exposes the deadening effect of self-referential attitudes on all our relations -- with other people, with nature and even with God himself. This book is deeply spiritual and at the same time personal as it lucidly distinguishes the mere experience of "I-It" relations from the profoundly different and dynamic presence of the "I-Thou" encounter. It is utterly timely in its insistent call for openness and genuine meeting, which is precisely
what's missing in our contemporary lives and in our politics at every level." --JERRY BROWN, former 34th and 39th governor of California
