An Interview with Thomas Berry

Recording with Thomas Berry, who was interviewed by Caroline Web in February of 2006. Berry is talking about Human-Earth Relations. "The human is here for the perfection of the Earth, not the Earth here for the perfection of the human..." "We can now sum up our situation as this: In the twentieth century, the glory of the human has become the desolation of the Earth. And now, the desolation of the Earth is becoming the destiny of the human."
