Harmony with Nature in order to achieve a just balance among the economic, social is not at the center of the Universe, neither are we humans the center of the Earth. Loss of biodiversity, desertification, climate change and the disruption of a on Harmony with Nature, has been to define this newly found relationship. Human, nature and society supplement one another and depend on one another the production of material products is nothing but the change of material form. . human, nature and society are in the ideal state of harmony and symbiosis. A human harmony with Nature is being more specifically and concretely change in the human relationship with the natural environment will.
But note well, that the first step is philosophical, the re-conception of what Nature is a congeries of dynamic biogeochemical ecosystems and what human nature is a congeries microcosmic biogeochemical ecosystems, including both individual organisms and various socio-economic wholes embedded in the whole-Earth macrocosm.
I am not an environmental activist in the conventional sense. I do not instigate or even participate in street demonstrations; I am not the creator of an organization to litigate on behalf of the environment; I do not even advocate any particular environmental politics or ideology in the university classes I teach.
I do however consider just what I do, what I have dedicated my entire life to doing—environmental philosophy—to be a form of environmental activism, indeed the most radical and ultimately effective kind of environmental activism.
Ultimately the only effective way to change what we do in regard to the non-human environment is to change the way we think about it. And that is my business as a philosopher—critical worldview remediation. A revolution of thought, of consciousness is the only path to a revolution of politics, economics, commerce and industry.
Only coordinated, concerted, collective action can be effective in mitigating global climate change.
And that means a complicated dialectic of socio-economic-technical evolution—that is, material-cultural evolution—and political action. So one can and should take personal responsibility for global climate change, after all: Nor, despite my extreme way of putting it, is personal lifestyle change altogether ineffective.
Such changes are contagious. Others will join in by, say bicycling, home to office and back, rather than driving; eating slow and local foods; and the like.
That in turn will be an impetus and constituency for political action and ultimately effective changes both in material culture and in policy and law. We are right to be suspicious of imagined catastrophic future scenarios resulting from climate change.Nina Morris on Natural benefits: human-nature relationships in the contemporary world
No one really knows what will happen. Nature exists before human and society and is the precondition for the birth of human and society. It is impossible for human and society to come into being without the gestation of nature, also, human and society cannot exist without nature, not to mention the harmonious development.
It can be seen that nature is the foundation stone which bears the weight of human civilization mansion and is the most profound natural foundation for the birth, existence and long-term development of human and society.
Nature is not only the producer of human and society, but also the foundation for existence of human and society. Human and society can never get rid of the dependence on nature and the restriction by nature. If human and society want to exist, they must carry out productive activity to get enough material goods, to outward seeming, the material production is the foundation for the existence of human and society, but all the material goods come from nature, human civilization will be inviable without the precondition of nature.
As a matter of fact, the material production is the activitycarried out by human and society on objects of labor by using the means of labor; the production of material products is nothing but the change of material form. It can also be seen from the operation of productive force that both the means of labor and the objects of labor are provided by nature directly or indirectly.
Besides, the status of objects of labor directly determines the efficiency of productive force, and is one of the important symbols of productivity level. Hence, nature provides solid material foundation for the existence and development of human and society. With the development of science and technology, raw materials in the production is becoming less and less, but various materials still come from the nature, no matter how many times they are processed. Human and society will lose their foundation without nature.
Therefore, nature is the precondition for the development of human and society, it ceaselessly provides power resources for the development of human and society, and is the foundation stone for the development of human and society.
A Discussion on the Harmonious Relationship of Human, Nature and Society
Social Development Is the Condition and Guarantee for the Harmonious Development of Human and Nature After the naissance of human and society, nature is no longer pure nature, but becomes nature with social or human characteristics.
In fact, nature becomes a social category, the harmonious development of nature and society are included in the social development and becomes a part of social development, because all the human activities on nature are carried out in society. It can be seen that the harmonious development of human and nature cannot go without social development. Although productivity development is not equal to social development, it plays a decisive role in the harmonious development of human and nature.
In this sense, development of productivity can be taken as the material foundation and means for the self development of human and harmonious development of human and nature.
Productivity development is the decisive force to coordinate the relationship and development of human and nature, and productivity represents the actual ability of human to solve the relationship problems between human and nature.
The solving of the contradiction mentioned above is determined by the development level of productivity. Human should reconstruct the nature so as to get material goods from nature and guarantee the existence and development of human and society. Besides, development and innovation in science and technology, which is the first productive forces, will solve the crisis of energy resources and provide technological support for the prevention and cure of pollution.
The Development of Social Culture Will Provide Spiritual Motivation and Intellectual Support for the Harmonious Development of Human and Nature Social culture mainly includes the entire consciousness ingredients and ideological forms of human as well as the entire spiritual phenomenon of society. The development of social culture is an important part of social development; also, it can provide spiritual motivation and intellectual support for the harmonious development of human and nature.
Although the existence and development of social culture is determined by social reality, social culture reacts strongly to social reality. If only the material living standard of people are improved, people will feel empty, lost and pain in spiritual life. In recent times, the industrial civilization of western countries brought about material satisfaction and unilateral development, which make most of the western people feel helpless and lost in spiritual life.
That is caused by the unilateral comprehension and disposal of the material desire of human and society. Even more important, if the development of social culture is neglected, the function of consciousness of ecological environment will be ignored, which will lead to the crisis in environmental moral and the tension relationship between human and nature.
The lesson teaches us that we must pay attention to the role of social culture in solving the relationship of human and nature.
It must be realized that the development of human and society will be unilateral and malformed if the development of social culture is neglected.
So it can be concluded that, the development of social culture must be paid much attention to so as to improve the ideological and moral quality of social members and provide spiritual motivation for the harmonious development of human and nature, to improve the scientific and cultural quality of people and provide intellectual support for the harmonious development of human and nature, to create stable and united social environment and provide advantageous conditions for harmonious development of human and nature.
The Revolutionary Change of Social System Is the Political Guarantee for the Harmonious Development of Human and Nature In real life, the meaning of nature, the relationship between human and nature, and the form, content and scope of utilizing and protecting nature, will be controlled and influenced by social culture.
From the aspect of social system, it can be seen that the resource and environment crisis in the western world has close relationship with economic system that centers on private ownership.
