Abstract

Franz Kafka and Martin Buber, two German writers of the twentieth century, have both made special contributions to the insight that modern man has graduated into a world where the individual is isolated from the personal world yet surrounded, enmeshed in the world of things. They see an inherent deterrent to personal relationships present within the mechanized, bureaucratized structure western culture has assumed.
