Abstract

This article is devoted to examining the relevance of ecophilosophy for sustainable development, especially in the modern East Asian context. Framed as a response to environmental historian Mark Elvin’s claim that allegedly eco-friendly philosophical and spiritual traditions like Daoism, Buddhism and Confucianism, had no effect in preventing environmental degradation in the long history of preindustrial China. Also that given this historical precedent, ecophilosophy – or any type of ideology as such – is likely to have no relevance in the efforts toward sustainable development now under way worldwide, the article argues the necessity of examining Asian countries that are farther along in industrialization than China, and which have witnessed the emergence of powerful ecophilosophy-based movements as a reaction to industrialization and its unfortunate side-effects.
