Chapter Summary

The most important source for examining Buber's mysticism during his second period is the book Daniel. An examination of this book is also significant for the continuation of our discussion, because this book, which is in practice Buber's first major book, is not only a transitional link from the first decade of the twentieth century to the later period in Buber's work. The author begins his discussion of Daniel by describing the power of the duality depicted therein and the depth of the unity required so as not to bridge this duality in an external or artificial manner. Buber's presentation of the reality of the world in Daniel is in itself mythical-mystical, without our even addressing the question of the elements of mysticism in the descriptions of unity therein. Further, this chapter focuses upon the mysticism of this book against the background of its descriptions of unity.
