Martin Buber was a creative and heterodox socialist thinker. His socialist utopia was based on the idea of a new community that does not hark back to ancient forms, but wants to overcome modern society while incorporating its achievements, such as the principle of individual freedom. It is not bound, like the old Gemeinschaft—the tribe, the clan, the religious sect—by one single word or opinion that soon freezes into dogma and rigid law, but by a common life characterized by freedom and creativity, which require a diversity of opinions.
