Berry continues with the intellectual themes that have occupied his thought over the past decades: the importance of community, and the diversity and sustainability of local economy; the damage wrought by industrialized economy and "global" thinking; and the inherent complexity of personal morality and its necessary placement within political and cultural contexts. He speaks forcefully against thoughtlessness, against abstraction, as he helps show one path out of the moral and social quagmires, which plague our society at the end of the 20th century.
