Hasidism and Modern Man remains prescient in its portrayal of a spiritual movement that brings God down to earth and makes possible a modern philosophy in which the human being becomes sacred. First published in 1958, Hasidism and Modern Man examines the life and religious experiences of Hasidic Jews, as well as Buber's personal response to them. From the autobiographical "My Way to Hasidism," to "Hasidism and Modern Man," and "Love of God and Love of Neighbor," the essays span nearly half a century and reflect the evolution of Buber’s religious philosophy in relation to the Hasidic movement.

Hasidism and Modern Man - Martin Buber

Hasidism and Modern Man - Martin Buber. By the time Buber came to consider the meaning of Hasidism for modern man, the movement had already been in existence for a century and a half. Sometime in the middle of the eighteenth century, in the Carpathian Mountains of southeastern Poland, the first seeds of Hasidism germinated. Buber was not interested in contemporary Hasidim, since he wanted to recover from historical Hasidism a message that might address the crisis of modern men and women, a crisis he defined as the radical alienation of the profane from the sacred.

A great compilation of Buber's insightful delving a into the ecstatic spiritual renewal in Judaism stemming from the Eastern European Hasdim over the past 200 years. Dense but so beautifully written - it's well worth the time invested - especially good to read in parallel with a friend as a study partner. Enjoy!

Martin Buber recounts tales and parables of previous generations of central European hasidic Jewry to illuminate a life philosophy with appeal for today and tomorrow's interested generations.He communicates his vast love and respect for what he sees as a treasure trove of wisdom and insight into the human condition as found in hasidic lore.This book is very readable and speaks more directly to the reader without the dense philosophical phraseology which makes other of his books difficult to get into .I have heard criticism that one is actually hearing Martin Buber's humanistic philosophy of life with reference to his interpretation of hasidic folk culture.Be that as it may there is a universal self help appeal to this book.Martin Buber communicates the idea of humankind as consisting of free thinking individuals who can shape destiny,"every man's foremost task is the actualization of his unique ,unprecedented and never recurring potentialities,and not the repetition of something another,and be it even the greatest,has already achieved"This is a book that might change the reader's life.

It is Buber, who more than any other writer or thinker,made the works of Hasidism first known to the Western world. He found in their lives of devoutedness to God, in their holy simplicity a message for Modern Man.

In this work Buber outlines the principles of Hasidism, and provides us a picture of a whole way, not simply of seeing holiness, but of living in Holiness in the world.

Martin Buber has not fared well in the world of religious Judaism. He took on the mantle of existentialism after the Second World War, with his classic book I and Thou, which made its mark, but appeared to repudiate his commitment to Judaism as a set of precepts, or mitzvoth, to be followed.

In this collection of essays, Hasidism and Modern Man, Buber tries to strengthen his record on the mitzvoth in the introduction. The book then meanders among a series of essays which frame Hasidic life, or portions of it, with the predicament of modern “man.”

Generally, as in most of his book, a careful reading is in order, and even then, much will escape even the greatest of care. Buber’s main problem is he tries to present a mainly anti-intellectual religious movement or trend in an intellectual framework. This works to a degree, but much is missing.

To find out about Hasidism, it is best to go to the original written sources. Or go find a good, genuine Hasid and watch him (or her!) in action.
