Martin Buber: Dialogue as the Grammar of Mutual Trust
Time & Location
Feb 12, 2023, 1:00 PM
About the event
Paul Mendes-Flohr, a prolific scholar of Martin Buber and Professor emeritus at Hebrew University and the Divinity School, University of Chicago, will speak with our own Dr. Warren Spielberg, a psychoanalyst, associate teaching professor at the New School and a Fulbright scholar who has done extensive work around race, masculinity, and trauma, particularly with Palestinian and Israeli boys. Together, they will speak on Zoom about how I-Thou relations can facilitate mutual trust–a trust that surmounts the intersubjective barriers forged by fear, existential anxiety, and, above all, cultural and political constructs of others who are different from oneself. This conversation, brought to you by PSJC’s Rodfei Tzedek Committee, will commemorate the recent hundredth anniversary of the publication in German of Martin Buber’s I and Thou.
