Nachhaltige Entwicklung durch Individualisierung

Kommentar zum Text von Andreas Suchantke: Einbindung oder Sonderstellung des Menschen
Elemente der Naturwissenschaft 100, 2014, P. 26-27 | DOI: 10.18756/edn.100.26


Ecology has so far made heavy weather of human beings – we rank first as destroyers of the world that we share with other creatures, but our role as preservers and developers is rarely acknowledged. With this it is clear – and Andreas Suchantke explains it convincingly – that both taking control of nature for our own uses, and integrating the human being into, it belong to the evolution of human autonomy. The author sees the first steps towards investigating the relationship between the human being and the biosphere only in research into the ozone hole and the greenhouse effect. Both problems are closely related to industrial products such as refrigerators, foam plastics and our insatiable combustion of fossil fuels.
