Wendell Berry – “The Cultural Contradictions of Power” [Rare Lecture – Audio]

Wendell Berry

I stumbled this morning on this fascinating 1978 lecture by Wendell Berry, which as best I can tell has never been published in one of Berry’s books.

Description:In a discussion about language and culture, the author of [easyazon-link asin=”0871568772″ locale=”us”]The Unsettling of America: Culture & Agriculture[/easyazon-link] argues that the deterioration of language into vague technocratic abstractions is directly responsible for our present moral, ecological and political ills.

If this lecture was timely in 1978, it is even more so today, 35 years later!!!

There are a few rough spots is this recording (presumably due to the transfer from tape to digital), but stick with it as this lecture is well worth the time!
