Quote: 3. From Eegocentrism to Ecocentrism
Man's attitudes with the surrounding world are formed chiefly by instincts that are innate reactions of an organism being the result of biological evolution and also by spirituality; the last one is of social origin and stands for achievement of harmony both inside a man and with the surrounding world. As a rule the decisive factor is the ruling at present public arrangement or the tradition, roughly speaking, directed to "good" corresponding with spirituality, or to "evil" that the instinctive basis correspond with. In the second case deficit of spirituality arises with all following negative aftermath which is demonstrated by the human history and especially the totalitarian power forms. It is offered to the readers the research about origin of the foregoing social situation and the way of influence on it.
