In the last decade there is confirmation of a movement toward understanding and appreciating cultural and epistemological diversity. This movement and appreciation for diversity is increasing in our educational, health, and religious institutions. Ecologically we are becoming aware of the necessity to understand and protect bio/ecological diversity.

This diversity lends itself not only to a multiplicity of being and of relating, but also is a fertile source of creativity and insight.
