Conceptual Foundations for Environmental Ethics: A Daoist Perspective Lai, Karyn Lynne en_US 2021-11-25T12:56:24Z 2021-11-25T12:56:24Z 2003 en_US
dc.description.abstract The concept dao and de in the Daodejing may be evoked to support a distinctive and plausible account of environmental holism. Dao refers to the totality of particulars, including the relations that hold between them, and the respective roles and functions of each within the whole. De refers to the distinctiveness of each particular, realized meaningfully only within the context of its interdependence with others, and its situatedness within the whole. Together, dao and de provide support for an ethical holism that avoids sacrificing individuals for the sake of the whole. en_US
