The Social Agenda Buber Has Left Us

By Arnold Jacob Wolf

Eugene Borowitz, April 14, 1978

On the centennial of Martin Buber's birth, the author examines the interplay between Buber's theological / philosophical ideas and his social / political ideas. Yet there is no present agenda which can be said to be Buber's agenda for the present moment, the author argues, since the most central of his teachings denies that any agenda means knowing in advance of living what one must do in one's life.
