Abstract

The possibility and prospects of use of an extended ecological approach in scientific research and in various areas of practice is substantiated in the article. It is shown that ecology can be considered not only in terms of co-existence and co-evolution of man and nature, but also as ecology of mind, knowledge, action, communication and management. Such kind of extended ecological approach has a strong interdisciplinary basis and demonstrates the methodological power of interdisciplinarity in modern science. The ecological approach becomes a tool for the study of specific properties and character of links installed in the networks of life and cognition, action, and managerial activities, including the educational
impact of teachers on students.
