[QUOTE]Martin Buber was a scholar, interpreter, and translator of Hasidic lore. He viewed Hasidism as a source of cultural renewal for Judaism, frequently citing examples from the Hasidic tradition that [B]emphasized community, interpersonal life, and meaning in common activities[/B] (e.g. a worker's relation to his tools). The Hasidic ideal, according to Buber, emphasized a life lived in the unconditional presence of God, [B]where there was no distinct separation between daily habits and religious experience.[/B] This was a major influence on Buber's philosophy of anthropology, which considered the basis of human existence as dialogical.[/QUOTE]
