dc.description.abstract There is not any fixed meaning in any concepts in the subjects related to social sciences and humanities. Meaning given for any concept may depend on the context where that concept is constructed and discussed. The idea of ‘crisis of meanings’ therefore is considered as the one of the central point of philosophical analysis of phenomenological methods, Wittgenstein philosophical methods and deconstruction methods. The phenomenon, process and states of being related to environmental studies have been developed within the complex contexts. Similarly, the meanings of the context of environment too have gone into problematic situations. This leads to a dispute over meanings between environmentalist and philosophers within the same school of philosophers and among different schools such as western and eastern thoughts. This has led to cripple both the national and international programs and plans that have been applied to solve environmental problems and conserve the environment. The broad objective of this paper is to inquire the meaning crisis in the context of environment and to locate these issues to a practical and realistic in order to search a solution for the said crisis. Secondary data from literature review was the main source for this study. Technique of conceptual analysis used in the subject of Philosophy was employed to analyse the data. Complexity of the meanings in the concepts of environment can be reduced from this study by introducing universally acceptable meanings. These unique meanings will help to solve burning environmental issues in the contemporary world. en_US
