Abstract. The article examines the content of ecological responsibility in the context of the key theoretical approaches developed within the framework of ecological ethics. In anthropocentrism the normalization of ecological responsibility is based on the principle of doing no harm to a human being, in biocentrism - on the principle of doing no harm to any living being. Eco-centric understanding of ecological responsibility develops beyond lesser evil logic because the norm is harming an individual life for the sake of eco-system or biosphere on the whole.
Key words and phrases: экологическая ответственность, нормативность, антропоцентризм, биоцентризм, экоцентризм, ecological responsibility, normalization, anthropocentrism, biocentrism, eco-centrism.
