Event Details

Herman Greene will lead a four-week course sponsored by Earth Literacies on April 19, April 26, May 3, and May 10, 2022, on Zoom, at 10 am to noon Pacific (1 pm to 3 pm NYC time). The title of the course is

Living in Transapocalyptic Times –
Thomas Berry’s Ecozoic Vision

The Basics: Why it Matters More Than Ever

Transapocalyptic means we are living in the ending of the world as we know it, but it is not the end of the world. How do we live effectively in a world that is both falling apart and bringing forth something new? What will that new be?


Here are the titles and descriptions of the four 2-hour sessions:

Session 1: Invitation – The Ecozoic Vision

Thomas Berry’s geo-historical analysis, his cultural critique, and his vision of the future

Session 2: Invocation – The New Cosmology

The philosophical underpinnings of the ecozoic – a new philosophical cosmology and a new philosophical anthropology

Session 3: Evocation – The Great Work

Thomas Berry’s guidance for the Great Work of moving on from the terminal Cenozoic era, to an emerging Ecozoic era in the story of the planet Earth

Session 4: Enaction – Living in Transapocalyptic Times

Letting go; navigating contradiction, multiplicity, and ambiguity; the politics of nature; Earth law; the ecozoic lens; hope


Suggested readings will be provided to prepare for each session.
