Ascetic Attitude and Ecological Thinking
AbstractAsceticism is founded on the etymology of Greek word askesis, which means ‘to
exercise’, ‘to practice’, ‘to give a shape’ and this meaning is connected with activity
and practical skills. The asceticism is a way of thinking, a way of living and a way
of choice. Affirmative elements of asceticism like voluntary self-denial, simplicity,
and moderation are a challenge to the world of today and present an authentic human
picture of ascetic life. Ecological thinking is a part of this life, a part of moral mature
and shows how our real relations with objective values look like.
