About the author

Martin Buber was born in Vienna in 1878, studied philosophy and art at the universities of Vienna, Zurich, and Berlin. In his twenties he was an active Zionist and worked closely with Theodore Herzl and Chiam Weizmann. However, Buber is best know for his revival of Hasidism, a mystical movement that swept Eastern European Jewry in the 18th and 19th centuries. Out of this interest evolved his dialogical, or "I-Thou" philosophy. Professor Buber taught philosophy from 1938 to 1951 at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem.
