Martin Buber is best known for his thesis of existential philosophy described in his book, I and Thou. However, he was also a scholar of the Hasidic tradition which he believed could be a source of cultural renewal for Judaism. In his short book, The Way of Man, Buber relates six brief Hasidic folktales that offer insights into the meaning and purpose of our lives. In four sessions, with Buber as our guide, we will read and unpack the wisdom embedded in these stories. No prior knowledge of Judaism or Hasidism is required for this class. Copies of the book will be provided.
