(p.1) 1 Childhood
Martin Buber's Journey to Presence

Phil Huston

Fordham University Press

Martin Buber, though brought up by a well-to-do family, experienced a relatively unconventional childhood because of his parents' separation when he was only three years old. Buber grew up with his grandparents but they were not as nurturing and intimate as people bringing up children should be, making Buber search for his mother. This chapter holds information on members of Buber's family, specifically his mother, his grandparents, his father, and his wife, and how they made impacts on Buber's childhood. This chapter also contains testimonies and explanations about Buber's thoughts and insights on his family. The chapter also presents information regarding Buber's school and education, religion, and other relevant happenings during Buber's childhood that helped mold Buber's line of thinking.
