dc.description.abstractEnglish: The environment has become one of the major issues of our time. Environmental management has become a discipline with different approaches to protect the environment against the effects of human exploitation. The basis of managerial approaches to environmental issues is to be found in the nature-culture dialectic as expressed in the modern humanistic ideology of mastery in a technical and economic sense. Such a dialectical approach is hierarchical and will prioritise either nature or culture. A nondialectical approach, such as can be found in Reformational philosophy, gives more possibilities to encompass the future of humankind and nature in one perspective.en_ZA
dc.description.abstractAfrikaans: Die omgewing het ’n belangrike saak van ons tyd geword. Omgewingsbestuur het as dissipline ontstaan met verskillende benaderings om die omgewing te beskerm teen die effekte van menslike oor-eksploitasie. Die basis van bestuursbenaderings tot omgewingsake kan gevind word in die natuur-kultuurdialektiek soos uitgedruk deur die moderne humanistiese ideologie van beheersing in ’n tegniese en ekonomiese sin. So ’n dialektiese benadering is hiërargies en sal natuur of kultuur prioritiseer. ’n Nie-dialektiese benadering, soos wat in die Reformatoriese filosofie gevind kan word, bied meer moontlikhede om die toekoms van die mens en natuur in een perspektief te omvat.af
