Anthropocentrism, noun, the belief that humans are the center or superior beings of the planet.
I learned about this word in college, while I was taking up a class on Environmental Philosophy. I was reading about Biocentrism when I came across this word, and thought, ohh, THIS is what’s causing most of our environmental problems today.
And now, years after I graduated as a Philosophy major, I see this video and can’t help but think the one who made it is a genius. Anthropocentrism explained in minutes through interesting visuals. Can’t help but share.
