Religions and Environmental Sustainability
Focusing on Some Practical Approaches by John B. Cobb Jr. and Seyyed Hossein Nasr
John B. Cobb Jr. and Seyyed Hossein Nasr attempt to bring religious moral foundation into the discourse on environmental sustainability. The present study focuses how Cobb and Nasr address the ecological crisis in connection with their respective faith traditions. It investigates whether their eco-theological thoughts are complementary in contextualising religious moral foundations with the present environmental problems. By making a comparative analysis of their eco-religious understanding and suggestions, this paper shows why their eco-theological thoughts seem significant for addressing environmental issues and how their suggestions can motivate humans to protect the natural environment.
