Chapter Summary

This index of the book presents a list of proper nouns, terms and concepts relevant to the discussion on existential philosophy of Etty Hillesum. Martin Buber was primarily influenced by three cultures; that of the East-European Jews ('Hasidism'), the German literary culture and the young Hebrew culture ('cultural zionism'). He brings a theistic vision to his exploration of religious consciousness, interpersonal relationship (Beziehung), and community (Gemeinschaft). His influence extends across the humanities, particularly in the fields of social psychology and philosophy, anthropology and culture studies, religious existentialism and ethics, and Hillesums studies.

Keywords: culture studies; East-European Jews; Etty Hillesum; German literary culture; Martin Buber; young Hebrew culture
