The environmental science and technology aesthetics is the aesthetic sense formed with the value orientation of environmental concept, the human’s realization of the environmental value, and the common sense and happy sound of singing that the environmental correlation between science and technology and nature triggered. The environmental science and technology aesthetics is the important theoretical resource that guides the development of modern science and technology. It has great theoretical significance and real practical value for us to surpass the Western traditional dualistic and opposing thinking mode, modern tool reason and anthropocentrism, promote modern science and technology to be environmental and maintain healthy, scientific and ecological development, construct socialist environmental civilization, and build a beautiful China and a beautiful world.
