Within today’s debate on the relationship between economics and ecology we often resort to the ancient models and ‘world ideas’ generated within Asian religious traditions. Works and authors from the past become part of the contemporary disputes among stakeholders of the economic systems and militants of the various sectors of contemporary environmentalism. In this work I intend to show myopia, risks and dangers underlying certain ways of dividing, justifying and governing the relationships that the human animal has with the ecosystem of which it is a part.
