This concluding chapter assesses the volume’s achievements and synthesizes major themes, including mysticism and the nature of reality; politics, power, and inclusion; and relational or responsive human agency. The chapter describes how themes were treated in unique and particular ways and how emphases created bridges of commonality, as well as insight and inspiration. Discussion about the purposes behind the dialogues and the process of creating them leads to examination of the connection between and among the participants as they ventured into metaphysics and reached conclusions about stewardship. An invitation to the reader for further exploration suggests topics such as water, land use, and climate change, for a better understanding of human and nonhuman flourishing.
