Från antropocentrism till biocentrism

"Once we grant that a change from antropocentric to a biocentric sense of reality and value is needed, we must ask how this can be achieved and how it could work. We must begin by accepting the fact that the life community, the community of all living species, is the greater reality and the greater value, and that the primary concern of the human must be the preservation and enhancement of this larger community."
"The human ultimately must discover the larger dimensions of its own being within this community context. That the value of the human being is enhanced by diminishing the value of the larger community is an illusion, the great illusion of the present industrial age, which seeks to advance the human by plundering the planet´s geological structure and all its biological species."
(Thomas Berry)
