Editorial Reviews

Review

'At once the best introduction to Buber's thinking and the best survey of his philosophy available in our language.' - The Christian Century

'I only met Buber once, but I felt then that I was in the presence of greatness' - T. S. Eliot

Friedman's Biography - the creme de la creme
There is no superior biography of Buber to Maurice Friedman's. I had the first edition and have been reading it since its first printing. Friedman and Buber were close associates and Friedman devoted a good deal of his professional life to Buber's works. He has the inside track. I have several other Buber books which I have lost and replaced over fifty years but always I greet this biobraphy as an old friend.
In this volume Friedman sets the scene with a discussion of "the narrow ridge," Buber's ultimate position and goes right to The Problme of Evil in Chapter 2, followed by a clear and thorough discussion of Hasidism, the spiritual foundation for his continuing work. The preface to the Fourth Edition offers some new insights, particularly into translation.
If I could only have one book on Buber, I would choose this book, and yet it alwways draws me to investigate the finer points of Buber's thought by acquiring more books. Dortje

Format: Kindle Edition
I had an earlier edition and wondered if I should spend the money on the current edition. The appendices (recent articles by the author that place Buber's thought in contemporary philosophical discourse about dialogue) made the purchase an attractive option to keeping the older edition. I was disappointed with the number of proofreading errors in the Kindle edition. Missing periods at the end of many sentences. Misspelled words that changed the content of sentences or interrupted the flow of reading. I returned the Kindle edition and will go to the library to read the hard copy. I highly recommend this book and hope there will be a Kindle update to fix the unfortunate errors that exist in the current version.

It's Buber. It's interesting. It's deep. It's dialogue. If you want to think about such things, it's worth getting this book.

Format: Paperback
Maurice S. Friedman was one of Buber's closest pupils, and one devoted his life to expounding the thought of Buber. This work tells of Buber's life and work and gives a good idea of his fundamental outlook.
