Abstract

This paper aims to shed some light on the association between the Bible and political philosophy in modern Jewish thought from the angle of Martin Buber's notion of theocracy. To begin with, I will present an overall picture of the general relationship between both the Bible and political philosophy before moving onto Buber's notion of theocracy. Then, I will attempt to obtain a bird's-eye view of the question of theocracy by examining how Buber's thought has been evaluated by the recent scholars of Jewish thought who have addressed Buber's ideology in earnest. In his The Kingdom of God (Konigtum Gottes) (1932), Martin Buber (1878-1965) provides in-depth insight into the concept of theocracy, which is of critical importance in considering the relationship between religion and politics. Issues relating to theocracy as raised by Buber are being studied in various fields and still ignite active discussions today.
