Through historical approach and philosophical analysis this paper attempts to explicate the doctrines of ecocentrism with a view to constructing an ecopedagogy in response to contemporary ecological crisis. First of all, the main doctrines of ecocentrism including deep ecology, spiritual ecology and constructive postmodernism are critically analyzed in order to derive their implications on educational practice. Basic framework for the construction of an ecopedagogy is also presented with an analysis of its potential contributions to the ecological turn of educational paradigm. Finally, recommendations are proposed to improve today's ecological education.

Keywords:ecocentrism, ecopedagogy
