Article/Chapter Title:On the Environmental Ethics of the Tao and the Ch'I
Journal Title:Environmental Ethics
Author(s):Cheng, Chung-ying
Religion(s):Taoism
ISSN:0163-4275
Date of Publication:1986
Volume:8
Pages:351-70
Annotation:Cheng offers a metaphysical exploration of the Tao and ch’i that describes the return toward the source, or totality. Seeing Tao as process and ch’i as structure, Cheng presents four axioms of nature from which he grounds an environmental ethic. This framework recognizes that harmonizing with the Tao is both the art of self-realization in nature and an act of the Tao itself.
