Özet

This study compares the ecocentric, anthropocentric, and antipathetic attitudes of Turkish and Azerbaijani teacher candidates toward the environment. It seeks to determine whether there are differences between the environmental attitudes of the students of these countries. In order to bring to light some of the psychological structures behind their thoughts on the subject, a Turkish translation of the attitude scale is used to determine whether anthropocentric, ecocentric, or nonenvironmental reasoning forms the basis of the attitudes of these individuals toward the environment.
