Martin Buber's classic philosophy of dialogue, I and Thou, is at the core of Kenneth Paul Kramer's scholarly and impressive Living Dialogue: Practicing Buber's I and Thou. In three main parts, paralleling the three of I and Thou, and focusing upon Buber's key concepts --nature, spirit becoming forms, true community, the real I, the eternal Thou, turning, -and the two fundamental dialogues-the I-Thou and the I-It- the book clarifies, puts into practice and vigorously affirms the moral validity of Buber's philosophy, with its extension to love, marriage, the family, the community, and God, in the conviction that genuine dialogue will effect better relations with one another, the world and God. Well-researched, and replete with a glossary of Buberian terms, practice exercises for true dialoguing, and discussion questions, Living Dialogue emerges as an invaluable guide to I and Thou. Highlights: - A lens through which to see and understand the philosopher and his work anew. - A must-read for undergraduates, as well as relationship counselors, therapists, and general readers, who will benefit from the work's clarity and ease of expression. - Includes a foreword by Maur

If you don't get the original I and Thou by Buber, read this instead. If you don't get this... go read the sparknotes first, then come back to this. You'll get it then. :) Read full review
