A Response to Jane Sahi's "Dialogue as Education: Martin Buber"
Baniwal, Vikas
Contemporary Education Dialogue, v11 n2 p179-195 Jul 2014
This article is inspired by Jane Sahi's commentary, "Dialogue as Education: Martin Buber," published under the feature "Classics with Commentary" in the Monsoon 2005 issue of "Contemporary Education Dialogue." I seek to further the discussion of the contributions of Martin Buber to the discourse of education through an elaboration and clarification of the ideas, concerns and critiques exposited by Jane Sahi. These concerns can perhaps be understood under the following themes: (i) reflections on educational practice in the light of Buber's ideas; (ii) the role of language in dialogue; (iii) the idea of learning; (iv) attitudes towards the "other"; (v) the teacher-pupil relationship and (vi) the role of the teacher. Although ideas on these themes in the writings on Martin Buber's have helped me in articulating this response, Jane Sahi's commentary forms the basis of my reflections.
