Buber's 'I and Thou': Encountering the Divine Through Meaningful Relationships

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Martin Buber was an influential existentialist Jewish thinker whose writings impacted the fields of religious philosophy and psychology. In this presentation and conversation, we will discuss Buber's relational philosophy, specifically the three types of "I-Thou" encounters which he considers central to human identity. We will also discuss Buber's radical theology in which people and the Divine are interdependent in a world where God's immanence is experienced by hallowing ordinary life.
