Care of the Soil, Care of the Self

Show Summary Details


In “Care of the Soil, Care of the Self,” T. Wilson Dickinson interrogates our familiar places and habitual practices in order to see anew the ways of being of obscure places, ecological connectivity, and the relationship between creativity and creation. He suggests that the care for creation may be connected to the formation of character, and vice versa, in surprising ways.
