    Bhagavadgītā, Ecosophy T, and deep ecology.Knut A. Jacobsen - 1996 - Inquiry: An Interdisciplinary Journal of Philosophy 39 (2):219-238.
    This article analyses the influence of Hinduism on Ecosophy T. Arne Naess in several of his environmental writings quotes verse 6.29 of the Bhagavadgitā, a Hindu sacred text. The verse is understood to illustrate the close relationship between the ideas of oneness of all living beings, non‐injury and self‐realization. The article compares the interpretations of the verse of some of the most important Hindu commentators on the Bhagavadgitā with the environmentalist interpretation. There is no agreement in the history of the (...)

    Humankind and Nature in Buddhism.Knut A. Jacobsen - 2017 - In Eliot Deutsch & Ron Bontekoe (eds.), A Companion to World Philosophies. Oxford, UK: Blackwell. pp. 381–391.
    Buddhism teaches that the diversity of living beings in the world is caused and upheld by intentional acts performed in this and previous lives by karmic trajectories, beings whose continuity through rebirths is not dependent on a transcendent substratum such as a self (ātman), and that the order of beings in the world exactly correlates with the consequences of acts (karrnan) operative for their present life. The central Buddhist doctrine of dependent co‐arising (pratītya‐samutpāda) shows how these karmic trajectories are sustained (...)

    Ordinary nature: Pakati in the P li scripture.Knut A. Jacobsen - 1993 - Asian Philosophy 3 (2):75 – 87.
    Abstract This paper analyses the uses of the word ?nature? (in P?li pakati, Sanskrit prakrti) in the P?li scripture. In the P?li scripture pakati is never used as a concept of nature considered as a unity or an entity, or as a material cause, as in the S?mkhya and Yoga, but it describes acts which are considered natural, regular and usual. The article tries to answer three questions. 1. What is the meaning of the term pakati in the P?li scripture? (...)

    The Institutionalization of the Ethics of “Non-Injury” toward All “Beings” in Ancient India.Knut A. Jacobsen - 1994 - Environmental Ethics 16 (3):287-301.
    The principle of non-injury toward all living beings in India was originally a rule restraining human interaction with the natural environment. I compare two discourses on the relationship between humans and the natural environment in ancient India: the discourse of the priestly sacrificial cult and the discourse of the renunciants. In the sacrificial cult, all living beings were conceptualized as food. The renunciants opposed this conception and favored the ethics of non-injury toward all beings, which meant that no living being (...)

    The meaning of prakti in the yogastra and vyāsabhāya.Knut A. Jacobsen - 2007 - Asian Philosophy 17 (1):1 – 16.
    It is a common mistake, especially, perhaps, among students of the religions and philosophies of India, to assume that the word prakti, best known as the ultimate material principle in the Sākhya and Yoga systems of religious thought, the material cause of the world in Hindu theologies and, as such, an epithet of the goddesses in Hinduism, always refers to an ultimate principle. Even in Sākhya and Yoga texts the word prakti is used in various ways. Prakti does not always (...)
