Jainism and Ecology: Nonviolence in the Web of Life

Christopher Key Chapple (Editor)
Synopsis In the struggle to sustain the earth’s environment as viable for future generation, environment studies have, thus far, left religion unprobed, in contrast to the emphasis given to science and technology.  Yet, no understanding of the environment is adequate without a grasp of the religious life that constitutes human societies.  As all encompassing, religious ideas not just content with other ideas as equals; they frame the mind set within which all sorts of ideas commingle in a cosmology.  Built on the premise that religions of the world maybe instrumental in addressing moral dilemmas created by environmental crisis, this book discusses Jain Cosmology, its Ethics and worldview.  The voices included reflect a wide spectrum of approaches.  This book is the S.L. Jian Research Series, intends to expand this discussion, inviting further collaboration on a topic of common concern- the fate of the Earth as a religious responsibility.
