This paper mainly discusses the application of the theory of dialogue education put forward by the Jewish philosopher Martin Buber in educational practice. Martin Buber believes that the relationship formed by people in communication has ontological significance. The human value can be fully displayed only in relationships. However, education can truly achieve its purpose of promoting the development of students and thereby inheriting civilization only in equal dialogue. To build a "I-Thou" dialogic relationship between teachers and students, the two sides must meet the following three basic requirements: respect for the other, mutual trust and co-presence. The "l-It" relationship and the "I-Thou" relationship, which are clearly distinguished by Martin Buber, are of positive significance to help us distinguish and understand the two different ways of thinking of human beings, restore the original essence of education, prevent the alienation of education and cultivate students' dialogue thinking. Nonetheless, we must also pay attention to eliminate some limitations in his educational thoughts.
