“Dialogue and the Nonhuman World: Buber and Contemporary Jewish Thought”

This talk explores exciting transformations in present-day Jewish thought by looking at intellectual and religious trajectories which engage the figure of Martin Buber. It will examine how Martin Buber's work has energized Jewish thought, and conversely, how his work has been transformed by contemporary concerns. More specifically: we will explore how the concept of dialogue has been transformed by the ecological crisis, moving from a humanist concern with other humans, to a broader materialist engagement with beings which do not speak (such as animals, babies, and plants).
