Book Title:Etre humains sur la terre: principes d'ethique de l' ecoumene
Author(s):Berque, Augustin
Publisher Name:Gallimard
Place of Publication:Paris
Date of Publication:1996
Annotation:Calling into question the proper nature of humanity, Berque locates human nature in culture, civilization, and ethics creating a distinction between the biosphere and ecumene. The goal of this book is to understand the principles of the ethical relation between humans and earth. Grounding his critical perspective in Japanese ideas of nature, such as those of Watsuji and Nakayama, he examines choice, human motivations and responsibilities, ecological symbolism, spatio-temporality, subjectivity, and fengshui.
