Abstract

Environmental philosophy of the last decades had several features, such as justifying of the need, importance and meaning of the environmental awareness, enfor_cing environmental values and building the theoretical as well as practical ground for environmental way of thinking. With the rise of environmental skepticism, which argues, that the environment is attributed an inappropriate importance, and denies the meaningfulness of the measures exerted, the evaluation of the social importance of the environmental approach to reality, the developments of the environmental thinking of the last periods can be essentially questioned.The aim of the paper is to respond do this change and to examine the basis of environmental skepticism, its methods and argumentation.
