Identities in RE

Martin Buber (1878–1965), a great Jewish philosopher of personhood, says in his book I and Thou (Touchstone 1970): ‘Inscrutably involved, we live in the currents of universal reciprocity.’ Perhaps a part of his meaning is that our identities are never merely solitary, but always connected. An ‘it’ becomes an ‘I’ through a ‘you’. Can RE learn from this insight?
