The goal of this forum topic is to discuss the differences between Anthropocentrism and Ecocentrism. I also want to see how YOU stand in this topic.

I am looking forward to seeing the differences you all come up with, and seeing how you all discuss this amongst each other.

It is kind of hard to be a supporter of ecocentrism with the knowledge that Nature has caused millions of species to become extinct before man ever drew breath; also with the fact that Nature will surely allow the earth to just quietly die along with any ecosystem "protected" when the sun burns out. So why is Nature important again?
I find myself intrigued by your subvocal oscillations.
A singular development of cat communications
That obviates your basic hedonistic predilection,
For a rhythmic stroking of your fur to demonstrate affection.

Anthropomorphism. In the context of people first, the environment actually is put first fairly often, because we're heavily dependent on it. But our relationship with the environment should still take into effect how it affects us before it considers anything else.
"See now Oblivion shimmering all around us, its very tranquility deadlier than tempest. How little all our keels have troubled it."
- Lord Dunsany -

"The darkness drops again but now I know
That twenty centuries of stony sleep
Were vexed to nightmare by a rocking cradle,
And what rough beast, its hour come round at last,
Slouches towards Bethlehem to be born? "
- W. B. Yeats -
