Chapter Summary

This chapter relates to the critiques of Gershom Scholem and Rivka Schatz-Uffenheimer regarding the general contours with which Martin Buber chose to present Hasidism, and thereafter turn to the question of the reality of this world in Hasidic sources, and from there to the significance of &t;service in corporeality&t; in Hasidic thought. All this will be considered in light of the solutions offered to these issues by Hasidism, as understood by Buber and by his critics. This is also one of the most significant questions to be considered in discussing the degree of intellectual integrity with which Buber approached Hasidic sources - as well as being one of the most important issues for understanding the message of Hasidism.

Keywords: Gershom Scholem; Hasidism; Martin Buber; Rivka Schatz-Uffenheimer
