Martin Buber was born in 1878 in Vienna; his grandfather, in whose house Buber spent much of his childhood was a renowned scholar in the field of Jewish tradition and literature. Buber studied in Vienna, Leipzig, Berlin and Zurich and entered the Zionist Movement, more for religious and cultural than for political reasons. He was the editor of a renowned Jewish magazine and lectured on Jewish religion and philosophy at the University of Frankfurt from 1924 to 1933.

In the first years of Hitler's rule, he stayed in Germany until he had to emigrate in 1938, and from then on he lectured at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem. He made many efforts for improving the understanding between the Israelis and the Arabs, in the post-war period also for re-establishing the dialogue with German thinkers and institutions. He died in 1965.

Quotations from Martin Buber:

 I have to tell it again and again:

I have no doctrine. I only point out something.

I point out reality, I point out something in reality which has not or too little been seen.

I take him who listens to me at his hand and lead him to the window.

I push open the window and point outside.

I have no doctrine, I carry on a dialogue.

MartináBuber, (1878 - 1965) Jewish Religious Philosopher
Reply to My Critics, p. 693 



 I do not accept any absolute formulas for living. No preconceived code can see ahead to everything that can happen in a man's life. As we live, we grow and our beliefs change. They must change. So I think we should live with this constant discovery. We should be open to this adventure in heightened awareness of living. We should stake our whole existence on our willingness to explore and experience.

MartináBuber, (1878 - 1965) Jewish Religious Philosopher



 He who loves a woman, and brings her life to present realization in his, is able to look in the Thou of her eyes into a beam of the eternal Thou.

MartináBuber, (1878 - 1965) Jewish Religious Philosopher
I and Thou 



 All real living is meeting.

MartináBuber, (1878 - 1965) Jewish Religious Philosopher
Martin Buber: The Life of Dialogue by Maurice S. Friedman: Chapter 10: All Real Living Is Meeting 



 There are three principles in a man's being and life, the principle of thought, the principle of speech, and the principle of action.

The origin of all conflict between me and my fellow-men is that I do not say what I mean and I don't do what I say.

MartináBuber, (1878 - 1965) Jewish Religious Philosopher
