Environmental Philosophy in Christianity and Buddhism: Meeting Places for a Dialogue

Melin, Anders LU (2006) In Ecotheology 11(3). p.357-374
Abstract
Questions concerning the human–nature relationship have received attention both within contemporary Christianity and Buddhism. Since the twentieth century an interesting and fruitful dialogue has been going on between the two religions. This article describes and discusses possible

themes for a Buddhist–Christian dialogue on issues of environmental philosophy. The theoretical starting-point is the belief that Christianity and Buddhism are not static and unchanging entities, but open to learning

from each other.
