The Humanitarian Spirit of Marxist Environmental Philosophy

Caixia AN, Daojin SUN


The purpose of the article is to discuss the humanitarian spirit of Marxist environmental philosophy and correct the two extremes of modern human environmental philosophy—non anthropocentrism and anthropocentrism on humanitarian mistake cognition; and dialectically manifests that protecting the environment and showing humanitarianism is not conflict. Protecting the environment does not mean to harm the rights of people, and showing humanitarianism does not mean to destroy the ecological environment. To solve the current ecological environment crisis and let people know the dealing with the relation between man and nature, it not only can protect the natural environment, but also does not harm people’s basic rights and interests, values. It is contrary to the humanitarian spirit; it is aimed to build a green, humane and harmonious society finally.
