Show Summary Details


This chapter discusses the lifework of Martin Buber, editor of Theodor Herzl's Zionist organ Die Welt and a Zionist who has rededicated himself to Judaism. Buber fought Herzl's claim against cultural Zionism, arguing that Zionism was itself only part of a renewed Jewish culture that would accompany the political work Herzl had made the movement's centerpiece. He has been consistent in his oppositional stance from the start, as a cultural Zionist opposed to political Zionism.
