Chapter Summary

In the first four chapters of this book the author examines the place of mysticism in Martin Buber's early thought, generally referred to by scholars as "the mystical period". He thereby hopes to obtain a different view of his "conversion" (discussed in Chapter 3) than that which draws a sharp distinction between the mystical period and the dialogical, supposedly anti-mystical period of his life. This will in turn serve as a basis for examining the role of mysticism in Buber's later thought, known as "the dialogical period" (Chapter 5), and will enable us to better define the relationship between the two periods (Chapters 3 and 4). The authors interest in undertaking such an examination already implies a certain conclusion, which he hope to establish and to elaborate by means of this book: namely, that Buber's thought was accompanied by significant mystical elements throughout his philosophical work.
