MetadataShow full item record
The issue of the environmental degradation and global character of the ecological crisis is one of the distinguishing features of the modern civilization. Thus, nowadays there are appearing many concepts concerned with overcoming the ecological crisis. This article presents the idea of peace with nature proposed by K.M. Meyer-Abich within the framework of the practical philosophy of nature. By the practical philosophy of nature I understand such a reflection on nature which includes an active presence of man in the environment. This understanding of the practical philosophy of nature is therefore equivalent with the demands of the times, in which human activity in nature is a major problem. Peace with nature is a political and philosophical concept attempting to reconcile the political and economic organization of an industrial society with the order of nature. K.M. Meyer-Abich’s departure point for the idea of peace with nature is a physiocentric conception of a human being, which is expressed above all by the belief in the phylogenetic origin of man and nature. He conceives of nature as a “connature” of human life. The phylogenetic origin of man and the surrounding nature makes us recognize the value of nature itself. Hence, K.M. Meyer-Abich’s conclusion is that environmental protection should be recommended, not only because of the man, but also because of the other elements of the connatural world.
