Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

Actually consisting of a set of wide-ranging, sentimental essays in which farmer, poet, and writer Wendell Berry argues for greater dialogue between the arts and sciences, attempts to show that E.O. Wilson's Consilience is no more than the subjugation of religion and art by science, and advocates a new "emancipation proclamation" to free people from enslavement by corporations.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

In a thought-provoking and concise rebuttal to E.O. Wilson's "Consilience", which attempted to reconcile science with religion and art, Berry argues religion and art are not subject to the reductionist and materialistic assumptions of modern science and cannot be contained by its boundaries.
