内容提要:In this paper I will develop two lines of thought, one theoretical and the other practical. I will provide an argument concerning Buddhist epistemology, and another argument concerning what practitioners can know. The main application of the theoretical argument is that including the ideas of authority of experience and worldviews, there is no contradiction between Buddhism and concern with the environment. The main application of the practical argument is that from a Buddhist practitioner’s point of view, the interconnection between all things is known by experience that includes but is not limited to reading written texts. Putting these two points together I will try to show how the respective roles of theory and textual understanding in philosophy on the one hand and meditative experience and awareness in Buddhist practice on the other hand together inform what can rightly be said about environmentalism from Buddhist points of view. In the process I will try to show, regarding the theoretical argument, that adequate epistemology of Buddhism should include not only texts but also worldviews. 
(摘要:展开两方面的思想,一方面是理论的;另一方面是实践的。提出一个关于佛教认识论的观点;以及另一个关于实践者能知什么的观点,并努力揭示其中的环境论蕴涵。)
