ABSTRACT:
Applied ethics is the most recent branch of ethics that deals with the analysis and interpretation of specific, controversial moral issues such as animal rights, euthanasia, abortion, organ-transplantation etc. Since the introduction of applied ethics in philosophical stream, the role of philosophy is expanded and the claim of the philosopher to intervene in all the problems relating to man, society and nature is being justified. Our responsibility for environment as well as attitude towards nature is one such problem which is becoming a subject of hot debate among academic circles. The main difference between philosophy and other academic and professional subjects is that while academic and professional subjects work in the realm of material knowledge, philosophy works in a higher realm than these subjects, in the sense that philosophy is about life- knowledge. Professional theorists and policy analysts often discuss environmental issues in the context of a more general understanding of environment; philosophy gives a holistic or complete understanding of nature and its intricate relations with man. In India, philosophy as such evolved out of our deep understanding with nature. This paper is an analyticalstudy of environmental ethics in the broader realm of Applied Philosophy.
