Influenced by the documents of the Second Vatican Council "Joy and Hope", the author makes introduction to his article on the environmental protection by the "Genesis" where he finds the foundations of the Judeo-Christian attitudes as regards the relation to the nature.
The standpoint: "A man is allowed all that he can" — is subject to criticism in order to appeal for responsible relation to the future of the world in the sphere of the modification of the nature to human necessities.
Quoting various up-to-date standpoints as to the protection of the environment, the author mainly accepts the holistic attitude.
A monastic attitude towards the nature is explained, concluding that in fact it is both anthropocentric and theocentric.
The author further relates to the standpoints of some saintly figures and their influence of the ideas about the nature: Benedict, Francis, Loyola, Teilchard de Chardin: the world as God's milieu. The author gives the whole range of the Church documents on the problems of environmental protection, of the Pope John Paul II, — finally expressing his own conclusion: the necessity of converting a man with regard to his responsibility for a healthy environment, awareness of the responsibility for the wholeness of the world (holistic ethical and moral attitude), re-establishing an attitude that it is more important "to be" than "to have", — the importance of the culture of life where renunciation should confront the prevailing hedonism.
