(p.106) 4 Realization
Martin Buber's Journey to Presence

Phil Huston

Fordham University Press

Buber's Daniel aims to establish a philosophical basis to the notion of “realization” through the following dialogues: Direction, Reality, Meaning, Polarity, and Unity. The author attempts to examine these dialogues extensively through understanding the presented allusions and symbols. This chapter defines each of the five dialogues through depicting scenes involving the characters from Buber's book. Generally, this chapter points out Buber's explanation on how, through realization, the reality of God is attained. In realization, a person is, when unconditioned, identified with God. One is then able to realize God through realizing himself of oneself.

Keywords:   Daniel, realizing, direction, reality, meaning, polarity, unity, God
