The Way of Man and Ten Rungs
Citadel Press, 2006 - 133 Seiten
Martin Buber - social activist, teacher and religious writer - was one of the 20th century's most important and passionate representatives of the human spirit. Two of his most influential works - The Way Of Man and Ten Rungs - resonate to this day. As enlightening and redemptive as they were more than 50 years ago, they are published here in a single volume for the first time. The tales and aphorisms retold by Buber in Ten Rungs are drawn from Hasidic lore, where the various ways in which individuals learn to perfect themselves are the "rungs" on a ladder leading up to a higher realm. The Way Of Man is a masterwork of economy in which Buber relates and interprets six traditional Hasidic stories that offer guidance and wisdom for any age. With a recognisable debt to the Hasidic emphasis on joyful worship, Buber's thoughts on spirituality are as inspirational and valid today as they were in the mid-20th century.
