Tutor description

Eastern thought is not as concerned with each state of being but rather the relationship between two extreme to create a balance in the world. Caroline Merchant describes Taoism as a form of dialectic idealism in Radical Ecology to illustrate this abstract idea that is quite different from traditional Western mechanical reductionist thinking.

How do eastern philosophies contribute to a reconsideration of the idea of the domination of nature? Which ideas are consistent with an ethic of care for nature?Through examining the teachings of Taoism, Zen, and Lao Tzu, we can begin to understand why the east has formed a fundamentally different relationship with nature from the west. Eastern philosophies help reconsider the idea of human domination over nature as a normative through an understanding of how our physical and spiritual well being comes from finding a balance with nature rather than the hierarchy of society versus nature
