The Eco-Philosophy of Seyyed Hossein Nasr
Spiritual Crisis and Environmental Degradation
The present paper focuses on Seyyed Hossein Nasr’s eco-philosophical understanding in connection to the present ecological crisis. By correlating Nasr’s eco-spiritual discussion with the environment, the paper investigates how deeply the human spiritual mind is connected in the ecological equilibrium. It tries to expose why Nasr’s ideas and suggestions in relation to the sustainability of environment seem significant. Here, a critical analysis of Nasr’s eco-philosophical and eco-spiritual understanding is also offered from a real-life perspective of the present world. In so doing, the paper will contribute to the ongoing debates on the spiritual crisis of modern humans and ecological disequilibrium.
