Quotation by Martin Buber:

We can be redeemed only to the extent to which we see ourselves."


Martin Buber     (more by this author)

1878-1965 (Age at death: 87 approx.)

Martin Buber (Hebrew: מרטין �'ו�'ר"�; February 8, 1878, Franz-Josefs-Kai 45, Innere Stadt - June 13, 1965) was an Austrian-born Jewish philosopher best known for his philosophy of dialogue, a religious existentialism centered on the distinction between the I-Thou relationship and the I-It relationship.

Born in Vienna, Buber came from a family of observant Jews, but broke with Jewish custom to pursue secular studies in philosophy. In 1902, Buber became the editor of the weekly Die Welt, the central organ of the Zionist movement, although he later withdrew from organizational work in Zionism. In 1923 Buber wrote his famous essay on existence, Ich und Du (later translated into English as I and Thou), and in 1925 he began translating the Hebrew Bible into the German language.
