Sometimes too abstract for me, but sometimes well done. For example, I especially liked Bonder's treatment of difference. On the one hand, he emphasizes the value of being able to honor the differences that are part of nature. But at the same time, Bonder notes, rancor can arise from "a lack of sensitivity when expressing our differences in others".
