Karl-Josef  Kuschel - Martin Buber –  -  - His Challenge to Christianity


Martin Buber – the champion for an autonomous Jewish identity

It was Martin Buber, more than any other 20th century thinker, who practiced and reasoned out the theory of "dialogue". In spite of all external stimuli, he consciously used only the sources of Judaism for his thoughts and beliefs. An overview of Buber's entire history shows a man able to disassociate himself decisively from Christian creeds and German-Christian impositions.

Karl-Josef Kuschel introduces the fighter Buber who argues in favour of an autonomous Jewish identity and precisely for this reason remains, for Christians, a permanently interesting but also awkward dialogue partner.
