The increasingly deteriorative living environment and serious ecological crisis are the primary causes of the appearance of ecological literature. Therefore, ecological literature has an appeal for taking an active part in the reality and inner ethical value. The ecological literature spreads its moral concerns from the humans and humanity to the whole ecosystem and natural life, which is philosophically based on Holmes Ralston’s Conservation Value, Schweitzer’s theory of Reverence for Life and Leopold’s Land Ethic. The ecological culture is not to amplify the differences between different cultures but to transcend those differences and tolerate the diversity, which belongs to the Community Culture of human beings.
