Download the PDF: The Double Life of Thomas Berry
A chapter by Duane for the book, Thomas Berry: Dreamer of the Earth, Ervin Laszlo and Allan combs (eds.), Inner Traditions. This chapter explores the intersection of the horizontal dimension of Berry’s work (the evolution of the universe through time) and the vertical dimension (the emergence of the universe in time as a living, regenerative system). Particular emphasis is given to the vertical dimension in Berry’s work–the spontaneous emergence at every moment of the universe as a sacred, interdependent system.
