This accessible new biography explores key moments in the life of the twentieth-century philosopher Martin Buber (1878–1965), one of the most influential Jewish thinkers of our time. It explores how events in Buber's life, such as his sudden abandonment by his mother when he was a child of three, attuned him to the fragility of human relations and the need to nurture them with what he would call a “dialogical attentiveness.” Further, it situates Buber’s life and legacy in the intellectual and cultural life of German Jewry as well as in the broader European intellectual life of the first half of the twentieth century.
