Student: Sofia Grineva

Supervisor: Mikhail Karpov

Faculty: Faculty of World Economy and International Affairs

Educational Programme: Socioeconomic and Political Development of Modern Asia (Master)

Final Grade: 9

Year of Graduation: 2018

The master thesis explores the way how the Chinese perceive and treat nature from the perspective of environmental humanities. It contains a mini-survey (based on two specialized scales and employing psychometric analysis ), a qualitative content analysis as well as an overview of existing paradigms of seeing nature/ environmental thought. The study shows that the Chinese participants predominantly tend to demostrate ecocentric visions with an inclination to admire nature and seek comfort, participation in it. We aimed to bring a new portion of knowledge while accumulating empirical data and theoretical understandings of the issue from ethics and psychology.
