Title: Emuna And Pistis: The Notion Of Faith In Martin Buber's Thought
Author: von Zuben
Newton Aquiles
Abstract: The axial insight from Buber's thought settled a paradigm by the duality of the "guiding-word principle" (Grundwort) I-Thou and I-It that is form as a keystone of his handwork about religion: the duet disposition of a man-I and a God-thou grounded on a mutual encounter. Faith - Glauben - is the man's answering to God, in the encounter which He revels himself by the guiding-word Divine-Thou as Presence of a mistery revealed. Buber suggest two different ways to believe: in one hand, the Emunah, as a personal trust or the abandonment from a people trustful, Israel, which is leaded by God and, on the other hand, the Pistis, which, according to Apostle Paul, it is an individual adherence for a Faith content, that is hold as a truthful creed statement. The two ways of believing, although there is diversity in the faith content, it can be learned from experiences: I have confidence in someone and recognize a fact as true. For those experiences, it is not possible to "give a reason", or to justify them. This paper aims to present, succinctly, Martin Buber's thought about this question that may illustrate his own comprehension about the relation between Hellenistic Christianity and Judaism.
