Difference Between Anthropocentrism Biocentrism and Ecocentrism
 Posted by 

The key difference between anthropocentrism biocentrism and ecocentrism is that anthropocentrism considers humans to be the most important thing in the universe/earth while biocentrism considers all living beings have inherent value and ecocentrism considers the value of the ecosystems which have both living and non-living components.
Centrism is the way of looking at things, placing a particular value or group at the centre.
Anthropocentrism, biocentrism and ecocentrism are three ethics in centrism. 
  • Anthropocentrism, human beings are considered as the central or most significant entities in the world. According to the anthropocentrism, all other beings are means to human ends. However, biocentrism and ecocentrism are non-anthropocentric or anti-anthropocentric views. Both ecocentrism and biocentrism consider human beings as “just another species” without giving them greater intrinsic value. 
  • Biocentrism focuses on all living beings, while 
  • Ecocentrism focuses on ecosystems, including living and non-living components.
