Confucianism and Ecology: The Interrelation of Heaven, Earth and Humans
Tucker, Mary Evelyn; Berthrong, John (eds.)1998
A collective work that includes 16 articles examining the interrelation between Confucianism and the ecological crisis from four different standpoints: a historical description of nature from a traditional Asian viewpoint; social ethics and cosmology; the connection between Confucianism and other traditional philosophies and religions; and the implication of Confucianism in specific ecological issues. The authors explore and analyse the relationship between Confucianism and ecology as a means of understanding how this religion and its philosophy and cosmology could help to solve the current environmental crisis.
