Supporting Ideas

The ideas listed here are all interlinked with the pages on this website in a number of different places. However, they particularly support the pages that describe different ways of knowing, learning about, and responding to the natural world — the core of Tapestry Institute’s mission. Each of these important concepts may be described in somewhat different ways by different scholars. We have done our best to explain them in a way that helps clarify their use on our site.
