Increasing numbers of people would appear to be becoming more aware of environmental issues and greening their lives. What is at the base of such leanings? And could we benefit by some lessons from the past? Diane Brandon is joined this week by Allan Combs, Professor of Transformative Studies at the California Institute of Integral Studies and Co-Author of Thomas Berry – Dreamer of the Earth. Mr. Combs shares information on Thomas Berry’s life and groundbreaking thought and philosophy with us and how he was a forerunner of future thinking about the environment and our placement and role in it. Thomas Berry was definitely ahead of his time and an ecological pioneer.
