"Anthropocene", as an era of geological division adapted to the geological environment of the post-industrial era, has caused human society to reflect on the future and destiny of human civilization. Under the framework of discussing the rationality of the division of Anthropocene, the influence of Anthropocene research focuses on the development strategy and historical view of material society. With the deepening of the research, it will give enlightening significance to contemporary ecological ethics research on the vision of human civilization development.
