Résumé

This article focuses towards the twentieth century ‘Eco-Phenomenology’ to make evident the hidden centrality of the earth in all human experience a ’polysemic’ term. It explores the intersection of phenomenology with environmental doctrines. Phenomenology is a unique personified modem which envisages researches and even expresses the phenomenal experiences, unless it has portrayed the clichéd doctrines, theories and well defined definitions with conscious experience. Ruskin Bond makes continual references to the environmental aspects of phenomenology in his creative works. His concerns and veneration makes him look at the advantageous attribute of environment and he interlaces the idea that environment can become educative, entertaining and enlightening. Such attributes of environment is termed as ‘Eco- Phenomenology’ which deals with the knowledge system as promulgated by environment. The present article highlights the features and structures of Environmental Phenomenology as it is found in Bond’s works. Broadly speaking, this is an ecological study based on the principles of Post- Modernism.
