Sorely missed? Martin Buber's sociology under scrutiny

Prof. Uri Ram, a sociologist at Ben-Gurion University of the Negev and author of the recently published The Return of Martin Buber: National and Social Thought in Israel from Buber to the Neo-Buberians, sheds light on an oft-forgotten chapter in the life of the celebrated Jewish theologian and political thinker. Appointed in 1947, Buber was the first chair in sociology in Israel, and introduced ideas that were quickly sidelined but have taken center stage in recent years.
