This book honors the memory and legacy of Martin Buber, one of the most illustrious members of the faculty of the Hebrew University and a leader in the world of philosophy. Based on the proceedings of a conference held at the Israel Academy of Sciences and Humanities--of which Buber was the founding president--this anthology recognizes Buber's singular contribution to the renaissance of Jewish studies and his international stature as a scholar.
