Annotation:Addressing what she perceives as a gap between theoretical and practical applications regarding the environment, Tucker searches the principal texts of Taoism and Confucianism for phenomenological descriptions of ecological worldviews. Focusing on ideas rather than religious practices, Tucker draws attention to the two traditions’ organic understanding of natural, social, and political ecology which may be helpful for contemporary discussions across the disciplines of ecology, cosmology, and ethics.
