- Martin Buber, succeeding the Jewish mystical tradition of Hasidism, developed a new concept of relational personhood, I-Thou. This ground word was coined as a result of serious attempts to refute the modern Western view of human beings, which can be characterized by the objectification of humans. I-Thou is also aimed at opening a horizon of relationship for the person-to-person encounter. Dietrich Bonhoeffer, a Lutheran minister and theologian, readily accepted this terminology so as to develop a concept of relational personhood on the basis of Christian faith. The two thinkers share in common a critical attitude toward objectifying cognition. The core questions of the present study are as follows: "What factors in Buberian 'I-Thou' theory have been highly valued and deemed appropriate for human existence by Bonhoeffer? How does he inherit Buber's religious and philosophical legacy?" This study focuses on the elucidation of Bonhoeffer's method of reconstructing Buber's I-Thou theory. In doing so, this study demonstrates that both Buber's Hasidic spirituality and Bonhoeffer's Lutheran faith contribute significantly to the development of today's religious and social concept of relational personhood.
