EGOCENTRISM TO ECOCENTRISM: AN EXPEDITION TO YANN MARTELíS LIFE OF PI

DR. LISON K.V, SMITHA MANI.

Abstract
The ecological concerns reflected in the novel, Life of Pi, by Yann Martel, draw attention to man's domineering and conquering attitude towards the environment and its species and to become conscious that nature is not to be seen as a commodity for man's self-centeredness and selfish motives. The oneness that Pi experiences with nature gives rise to a deep appreciation of the reality of interdependence, and from this comes the urge to be involved in opposing all sorts of ecological abuses. From the deep ecological and Buddhist perspectives on ecology, awareness arises in the individual towards a sense of belonging, of connectedness, to the universe as a whole. The eco-critical analysis of the text on this basis, results in a change in perception of humanity regarding environmental relationships, to a more peaceful order.

Key words: Buddhist philosophy, Deep ecology, Ecocentrism, Egocentrism, Self-Actualization.
