Martin Buber (1878–1965) was one of the most influential Jewish
thinkers of the twentieth century. A philosopher, seeker, and nurturer of
dialogue, he responded to the complexities of his times by affirming the
fullness of interpersonal encounter and the spiritual everyday. In 1947,
Buber delivered lectures interpreting six traditional Chasidic stories
to a German-speaking audience, published as The Way of Humanity. In
the first new English translation in over half a century, Rabbi Bernard
H. Mehlman, DHL, and Gabriel E. Padawer, ScD, z"l, bring the work to
contemporary readers in a clear, accessible voice. The teachings within
highlight the subversion and innovation of the early Chasidic masters of
the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, while providing meaningful
spiritual guidance and insight for any seeker today. Scholarly forewords
by Paul Mendes-Flohr, PhD, and Rabbi Joseph A. Skloot, PhD, as well
as an introduction, epilogue, and notes from the translators, place
Buber’s work in historical context. Timeless and enlightening, The Way
of Humanity
guides us to inner meaning and highlights our human
