Environmental Philosophy in Christianity and Buddhism: Meeting Places for a Dialogue

Anders Melin
Issued Date: 24 Feb 2007


Questions concerning the human–nature relationship have received attention
both within contemporary Christianity and Buddhism. Since the
twentieth century an interesting and fruitful dialogue has been going on
between the two religions. This article describes and discusses possible
themes for a Buddhist–Christian dialogue on issues of environmental philosophy.
The theoretical starting-point is the belief that Christianity and
Buddhism are not static and unchanging entities, but open to learning
from each other.
