The essential agrarian reader the future of culture, community, and the land ( file )
11 editions published between 2003 and 2010 in English and held by 1,694 libraries worldwide
"Offering fresh insights from the disciplines of education, law, history, urban and regional planning, economics, philosophy, religion, ecology, politics, and agriculture, the original essays in The Essential Agrarian Reader develop a sophisticated critique of our culture's current relationship to the land while offering practical alternatives. Leading agrarians, including Wendell Berry, Vandana Shiva, Wes Jackson, Gene Logsdon, Brian Donahue, Eric Freyfogle, and David Orr, explain how to create genuinely sustainable communities. While lamenting the shortsightedness of recent economic and political ambitions, these writers call for an honest accounting and correction of destructive ways of life. They suggest how our society can take practical steps toward integrating soils, watersheds, forests, wildlife, urban areas, and human populations into one great system - a responsible flourishing of our world and culture and a celebration manifested in honest work and respect for the land."--Jacket

The art of the commonplace : the agrarian essays of Wendell Berry by Wendell Berry( Book )
2 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 193 libraries worldwide
"The Art of the Commonplace gathers twenty-one essays by Wendell Berry that offer an agrarian alternative to our dominant urban culture. These essays promote a clearly defined and compelling vision important to all people dissatisfied with the stress, anxiety, ill-health, and destructiveness of contemporary American culture. Why is agriculture becoming culturally irrelevant, and at what cost? What are the forces of social disintegration, and how might they be reversed? How might men and women live together in ways that are to the benefit of both? And, how does the corporate takeover of social institutions and economic practices contribute to the destruction of human and natural environments? Through his staunch support of local economies, his defense of farming communities, and his call for family integrity, Berry emerges as the champion of responsibilities and priorities that serve the health, vitality and happiness of the whole community of creation".--Book jacket

Acedia ( Book )
1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 4 libraries worldwide
"Despite its prevalence in our culture, acedia may be the least understood of the seven capital vices, or 'deadly sins.' "At its core, acedia is aversion to our relationship to God because of the transforming demands of his love," Rebecca DeYoung explains. "God wants to kick down the whole door to our hearts and flood us with his life; we want to keep the door partway shut so that a few lingering treasures remain untouched, hidden in the shadows." We deploy two, dissimilar strategies to avoid the demands of love, whether human or divine: not doing what's required of us, or pouring ourselves into something else. Andrew Michel discusses the relationship between the spiritual torpor that attends acedia and clinical depression. Dennis [Okholm] and Amy Freeman examine a primary remedy for acedia, namely stabilitas, or staying put and not running away from love's demands. The novels of Evelyn Waugh reveal the pervasiveness of acedia in modern culture, Heather Hughes explains. Kyle Childress and Alvin Ung track its toxins in congregations and the workplace." --Publisher's website
Transforming Philosophy and Religion Love's Wisdom. Indiana Series in the Philosophy of Religion ( Computer File )
2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 3 libraries worldwide
Norman Wirzba, Bruce Ellis Benson, and an international group of philosophers and theologians describe how various expressions of philosophy are transformed by the discipline of love. While it has been fairly common for philosophers to think about love, the 16 compelling essays gathered here go beyond the commonplace to show how philosophy is implicated in the ways of love. What is at stake is how philosophy colors and shapes the way we receive and engage each other, our world, and God. Focusing primarily on the Continental tradition of philosophy of religion, the work presented in this volume engages thinkers such as St. Paul, Meister Eckhart, Kierkegaard, Husserl, Heidegger, Ricoeur, Derrida, Marion, Zizek, Irigaray, and Michele Le Doeuff. Emerging from the book is a complex definition of the wisdom of love which challenges how we think about nature, social justice, faith, gender, creation, medicine, politics, and ethics
The dark night of the soil : an agrarian approach to mystical life by Norman Wirzba( Book )
1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
"This article presents views and insights of the author regarding agrarian approach to mystical life. The author implies that the characterization of mysticism opens new possibilities for a dialogue between American writer Wendell Berry's ambition to be in place and the mystic's commitment to be present to creation. He also discusses the role of agrarian practices and sensitivities in the reformulation of a contemporary mysticism." -- from EBSCO database
