Improvements to be made[edit]

As a suggestion for this article I would use and cite quotations from Buber's work more often. To better understand his philosophy on the concepts of I-Thou and I-It relationships it is important to read his own words. Sandbergj19 (talk) 18:48, 28 September 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I respectfully suggest {{sofixit}}. But don't go too heavy on the quotes. It's frowned on, as you run into danger of making the article look cluttered... quotes should be used sparingly and spaced throughout the article. For major points, find a really telling quote. If the quote is pretty much a just restatement of the article's text, for example, then that quote will almost certainly be considered clutter... And don't use those accursed cartoon quote templates – just a simple, plain quotation marks for short ones and straightforward block quote for longer ones...tks & kutgw. ♦ Lingzhi.Random (talk) 20:12, 28 September 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Published works[edit]

I am just wondering how meaningful it is to list all Buber's publications in German on this page again, instead of providing a link to the German page where these works (and more) are already listed. I came here looking for English translations of Bubers beyond the two versions of "I and Thou" translated by Ronald Gregor Smith, published by Charles Scribner & sons, 1958; and by Walter Kaufmann, published by Simon Schuster as a Touchstone edition, 1996.

Why is one of the links the "The Martin Buber Institute for Dialogical Ecology," yet the term "ecology" is mentioned nowhere in the current version of this article? (talk) 03:22, 20 February 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
