Paper long abstract:

With the related papers and works of it arising unceasingly, the ecological anthropology, an emerging discipline, will take a long way to become a genuine discipline, though it has already evoked a universal interest in the contemporary China. From the theoretical framework of eco-anthropology, no conclusions can have been reached so far, as opinions on the its research programs and subjects vary. As far as its nature of this discipline is concerned, the ecological-anthropology should be a cultural anthropology on the human ecology. Therefore, in the aspect of culture, this paper is trying to understand and answer all ecological questions which the human society faces. It should be an undisputed fact; in fact, there are too many different opinions on ecosystem which the contemporary society faces. Some scholars initiate anthropocentrism, and more maintains ecological-centrism. This paper proposes that the eco-anthropology must be analyzed from culture, and the human constructs his own culture in the ecosystem, which the human culture not only deviates in the natural system, but also in the returning to natural system. So, the human should insist on his cultural centralism.
