CHANCES OF HUMAN ECOLOGY (Moznosti humannej ekologie)
Languages of publication
The aim of this paper is to offer an overview of the main positions in ecological ethics as a special field of applied ethics. All approaches in this field endeavour to extend the area of ethics to the non-human world; they have built their systems using different theoretical constructions concerning the meaning of nature. One can enumerate the following main approaches of contemporary ethical views in human ecology: 'holistic', 'cosmocentric', 'biocentric', 'anthropocentric', 'pathocentric', and 'teleological' ethics. The paper offers a 'consciously eclectic' approach between these special points of view.
