Dr. James Tully on Reconciliation Here on Earth: Shared Responsibilities
Reconciliation Here on Earth: Shared Responsibilities With Dr. James Tully
Dalhousie University, Halifax Nova Scotia
At the conference Reconciliation Here on Earth, Canadian philosopher James Tully explored what it means and what kind of practices are required for a sustainable future. He argued that our shared responsibilities among communities and symbiotic ecosystems require a commitment in two informal interconnected processes or types of reconciliations: first, a reconciliation between indigenous and non-indigenous persons, that is the reconciliation between native traditions and those of settlers; and secondly a reconciliation between human beings and what he terms the living earth, that is the sustainability and the recognition of the symbiotic interrelationships between human beings and ecosystems that sustains all life forms and habitats.
