Palmer, J. A. (Ed.). (2003). Fifty major thinkers on education: From Confucius to Dewey. New York, NY: Routledge.
Martin Bubur (1878-1965) emphasized the importance of dialog in education.
Martin Buber concurred with the idea of getting to know one’s students. According to Palmer (2003), Buber felt that in order to fulfill one’s responsibility as teacher, the teacher must experience the other side of the encounters with students and must realize the situation both as it occurs to them and to the students.
