In this episode of A Worldview Apart Eric explores the ideological underpinnings of anthropocentrism, which is the widely-held idea that human beings are the most important species on Earth and perhaps in the universe. By defining how we view our relationship to the landscapes we inhabit and the other species we share those landscapes with, this ideology drives many of the negative environmental impacts that human beings have on the world today.
