environmental philosophy is?

Environmental philosophy deals with ideas and opinions that man developed and develops regard his relationships with the environment and, in particular, the natural world.

Restrictively it studies what the humans think about nature, in a general sense of great concern are:

  •  Science and ecology: they are sources of knowledge about natural laws and relationships between living organisms and their environment;

  •  Environmental ethics: the moral behaviour of man facing the natural world (animal ethics, ecosystems ethics, etc.);

  •  Environmental politics: theory and practical relationships between Nations (and citizens) and natural environment;

  •  Environmental theology: relationships between man-gods-nature;

  •  And also … everything about man and nature relationship, living organisms and nature.

This is a central question. What is our place in nature?

And, possibly: ... What is our role?
