Thomas Berry (1914–2009) was one of the twentieth century’s most
prescient and profound thinkers. As a cultural historian, he sought
a broader perspective on humanity’s relationship to Earth in order
to respond to the ecological and social challenges of our times.

Berry urged humans to recognize their place on a planet with complex
ecosystems in a vast evolving universe. He sought to replace the modern
alienation from nature with a sense of intimacy and responsibility.
Berry called for new forms of ecological education, law, and spirituality
and the creation of resilient agricultural systems, bioregions, and ecocities.

At a time of growing environmental crisis, a new biography shows the
ongoing significance of Berry’s conception of human interdependence with Earth
within the unfolding journey of the universe.
