Transformative Philosophy



“It’s all a question of story.  We are in trouble just now because we are in-between stories.  The Old Story – the account of how the world came to be and how we fit into it – sustained us for a long time.  It shaped our emotional attitudes, provided us with life purpose, energized action, consecrated suffering, integrated knowledge, and guided education.  We awoke in the morning and knew where we were.  We could answer the questions of our children.  But now it is no longer functioning properly, and we have not yet learned the New Story.”

Thomas Berry

What is the “new story”?  More importantly, what are the values and visions that create and uphold the Emerging Story?  What is the New Philosophy?
