Studies in Canadian Material Culture
"To consciously shape our future, we must be able to choose wisely and act responsibly in the present. However, too many of our present personal and institutional conceptions, processes and structures do not even encourage us, let alone enable us, to do so. Therefore, we need to commit ourselves to the task of inventing and developing new life-giving perceptions, relationships, and structures which both embody and reflect wisdom and responsibility."
