Lecture 11
Arendt continues
Childhood isnt a state, but a relation a responsibility that goes from adult to child.
She says that we value children and fear them for the same reasons
Martin Buber (1878-1965)
Takes the same issue with progressivist education like both Dewey and Arendt do
He is described as a dialogical philosopher
Dewey- liberal
Arendt- political
Buber- communitarian/dialogical
Plato- rationalist
Rousseau- romanticist
Ich und Du (I and Thou)
Conceived in 1916, published in 1923
Translated to English in 1937
I and Thou was not best translation of its German Title. But it is the way in which it
became famous
Thou: an intimate form, a friend type. Like tu in French
This relationship that goes from the I to the You is one of intimacy
For Buber we are being of relation. To be human is to be in relation. Fall into two
categories: interpersonal relationships and objective relationships (between a subject
and a thing). When we are in an I-You relationship is when we are human; when we
are in an interpersonal relation.
Why You and not Thou
Another vocabulary warning: spiritual beings
Buber is not speaking here of angels or ghosts, but of works of genuine art, in both
its intellectual and aesthetics forms (see for ex., p. 60-61)
I-You and I-It
He is not talking about two things with different ontological realities.
Our relationship to it is determined by the relationship to it
The world as experience belongs to the basic word I-It.
The basic word I-You established the word of relation (I and Thou, 56)
Two ways of being a subject to the word
We cant think of ourselves without implying these two words pairs
Genuine encounters between people are always possible
Monodirectional and bidirectional (reciprocity)
Reciprocity is a very important word for Buber

OneClass has been such a huge help in my studies at UofT especially since I am a transfer student. OneClass is the study buddy I never had before and definitely gives me the extra push to get from a B to an A!
