Description Between Heschel and Buber de Alexander Even-Chen:

Abraham Joshua Heschel and Martin Buber were giant thinkers of the twentieth century who made significant contributions to the understanding of religious consciousness and of Judaism. They wrote on various subjects, such as the Bible, the commandments, Hasidism, Zionism and Christianity, and had much in common, though they also differed on substantial points. Of special note is the intense and fruitful interaction that took place between them. Until now, scholars have not undertaken a comparative analysis of Buber and Heschel as eminent contemporary interpreters of the Jewish tradition. In this volume, Meir and Even-Chen have taken upon themselves the challenge of monitoring their agreements and disputes. Ephraim Meir (PhD Louvain University, Belgium) is Professor of Modern Jewish Philosophy at Bar-Ilan University, Ramat Gan, Israel. He has been a guest professor in Strasbourg, Heidelberg, and Phoenix, Arizona, and a regular guest professor at Hamburg University. Among his recent books are Levinas's Jewish Thought between Jerusalem and Athens (2008), Identity Dialogically Constructed (2011), and Differenz und Dialog (2011). Alexander Even-Chen (PhD Hebrew University) is Professor of Medieval and Modern Jewish Philosophy at Schechter Institute of Jewish Studies, Jerusalem, Israel. He received rabbinical ordination at Schechter Institute of Jewish Studies and is the author of A Voice from the Darkness.
