Sociological Aspects on Man, Value Orientation and Sustainable Development

Lindén, Anna-Lisa LU (1997) In Science, Ethics, Sustainability. p.41-50
Abstract
The aim of this chapter is to tenatively discuss a sociological perspective on the relations between man, value orientation, behavioral orientation and sustainable development. Sociologists often get questions about the stability and development of values and willingness to change behavior in a direction which is more favorable to the environment. There are lots of problems with such questions. The first problem is the lack of tradition in the study of relations between man and nature. The second problem is the problem with time series analysis of values. The third problem has to do with structural aspects in comparative analysis. The problems are discussed in three sections namely the relation between man and nature as a value orientation... (More)
The aim of this chapter is to tenatively discuss a sociological perspective on the relations between man, value orientation, behavioral orientation and sustainable development. Sociologists often get questions about the stability and development of values and willingness to change behavior in a direction which is more favorable to the environment. There are lots of problems with such questions. The first problem is the lack of tradition in the study of relations between man and nature. The second problem is the problem with time series analysis of values. The third problem has to do with structural aspects in comparative analysis. The problems are discussed in three sections namely the relation between man and nature as a value orientation dimension, the relation between man and society as a behavioral dimension, and a two dimensional typology of the relations between value orientation, behavioral orientation and sustainable development.
