Anthropocentric Belief Represented in a Cartoon

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.

    Yes so true Ms Paula. We are so lucky we have subjects like those. Mine was Community based Resource Management and others subjects also , which discuss the human decisions and actions that lead to environmental problems. Thanks for the share!
