Biocentrism - for any part of the game? good idea?

Posted on Wednesday, April 9, 2014

The term Biocentrism encompasses all environmental ethics that “extend the status of moral object from human beings to all living things in nature.” Biocentric ethics calls for a rethinking of the relationship between humans and nature. It states that nature does not exist simply to be used or consumed by humans, but that humans are simply one species amongst many, and that because we are part of an ecosystem, any actions which negatively affect the living systems of which we are a part adversely affect us as well, whether or not we maintain a biocentric worldview. Biocentrists believe that all species have inherent value, and that humans are not "superior" to other species in a moral or ethical sense.

The four main pillars of a biocentric outlook are:

    .Humans and all other species are members of Earth's community.
    .All species are part of a system of interdependence.
    .All living organisms pursue their own "good" in their own ways.
    .Human beings are not inherently superior to other living things.

 Biocentric Universe:

Biocentric Universe: also known as Biocentrism is a concept which sees biology as the central driving science in the universe, and an understanding of the other sciences as reliant on a deeper understanding of biology. Biocentrism states that life and biology are central to being, reality, and the cosmos — life creates the universe rather than the other way around. It asserts that current theories of the physical world do not work, and can never be made to work, until they fully account for life and consciousness. While physics is considered fundamental to the study of the universe, and chemistry fundamental to the study of life, biocentrism claims that scientists will need to place biology before the other sciences to produce a theory of everything...
