The subject of this review is the second part of the information-military dictionary “Ecology of human existence: media ecology”. The dictionary presents the theme of media ecology or ecology of communications through a number of terms in the aspect of the ecohumanist approach. The authors of the vocabulary articles developed and used it as a new methodology in the study and understanding of the capabilities of modern digital technologies that form the information environment for the existence of a contemporary human. The editors and authors of the vocabulary set a goal of carrying out a philosophical interpretation of the technical and technological conditions of human ‘in-der-Welt-Sein’, in the aspect of information environment (media space), and propose a new, namely, eco-humanistic approach for solving the main problems of the relationship “human – technical and technological world”. The texts of vocabulary articles substantiate the thesis that the capabilities and power of modern digital technologies actualize the need for an eco-humanistic measurement of the relationship “human – technical and technological world”, which does not pre-refuse digital technologies, but means the optimal use of all technological tools, taking into account the detection and preservation of their humanistic potential. The review pays attention to the specifics of the theoretical development of the eco-humanistic approach and its main principles: integrity, optimality, coordination, and eco-systemity. As a result of the analysis the reviewer concludes that the eco-humanistic approach proposed and used by the authors will allow to study and explore the processes and phenomena of contemporary culture in a multidimensional manner, to receive a more accurate interpretation of the ways of human existence and eco-cultural practices that ensure the effect of the staneity of the “ecosystems” in the situations of any intensive technological transformations.
