I and Thou by Martin Buber

I and ThouI and Thou by Martin Buber
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I recognize that this rating/review says more about me than the book, but I just didn't understand most of this book. To the extent that (I think) I understood some of the ideas, it was because I have previously encountered the ideas elsewhere, such as the Judeo-Christian tradition or the ideas of consciousness in Buddhism. According to Kaufman, Buber himself couldn't elucidate some of these passages. Life is already a mystery- Buber 's ambiguous writing isn't particularly helping me navigate it. Since I own the book, maybe I'll try again when I'm older and wiser.
