The Martin Buber-Carl Rogers discussion offers a corrected and generally annotated model of this vital textual content in human sciences. targeting the only assembly among those valuable figures in twentieth-century highbrow lifestyles, Anderson and Cissna go back to the unique 1957 audio tape and to quite a few different basic resources as they right and make clear the old record.

"I just like the indisputable fact that it offers an entire and unedited ancient checklist of a uniquely major public dialog among basic participants to dialogic idea. The ebook presents an extraordinary, actual photo of the one assembly among those seminal thinkers who begun from assorted orientations but arrived at an analogous theoretical vacation spot. This booklet will set a brand new common and will turn into the definitive account of this significant, intellectually major occasion for dialogic theory." -- T. Dean Thomlison, college of Evansville
