Confucianism demonstrates a wealth of resources for rethinking human-earth relations. This second volume in the series on religions of the world and the environment includes 16 essays that address the ecological crisis and the question of Confucianism from three perspectives: the historical describes this East Asian tradition's views on nature, social ethics and cosmology, which may shed light on contemporary problems; a dialogical approach links Confucianism to other philosophical and religious traditions; and examination of engaged Confucianism looks at its involvement in concrete ecological issues.
