From: Aristotle
Re: "Blood Libel"

"It is useful to have examined the number of meanings of a term...for clearness' sake (for a person is more likely to know what it is he asserts, if it has been made clear to him how many meanings it may have)."


"We ought to use our terms to mean the same things as most people mean by them."

--Aristotle

what people are saying about drew

"Thomas Berry insisted on the over-arching importance of spreading the epic version of the universe story as our new creation myth, and Thomas insisted that we couldn't leave this vital work of cultural therapy to scientists but must enlist the artists, musicians and poets. Well Drew Dellinger was among the first to answer this call and certainly among the most talented and effective. I can't speak highly enough of the quality of both the work and his delivery."
- John Seed, Australia, rainforest activist and co-author of Thinking Like a Mountain
