much more complicated in practice. Over all, the evaluation model presented
here represents a fine-tuned version of the ecocentric ethic which considers the
intrinsic values of nature, goes beyond biocentrism, yet avoids extreme holism
which no longer allows for any distinctions. It is not an ideal evaluation model,
nor a patent remedy. It still encompasses difficulties which are caused by the
relationship between human values and the intrinsic values of nature. One of
these difficulties ...

... of living things, and deserves active curtailment. To take another metaphor for
life: Life as we observe it seems to be one living being, a huge organism of itself,
sometimes personalized with the name Gaia, the Greek name for Mother Earth.
To the extent that one species grows without limit — outstripping its role in the
organism, displacing other organs, draining resources, exuding toxins — that
species is a cancer in the body. It has to come out. But Leopold goes beyond
biocentrism.

Stan Rowe argues eloquently for ecocentrism, which he says goes beyond
biocentrism by considering all natural entities, not just organisms. Interestingly,
Rowe sees Aldo Leopold (whose name is used to support most articles on
ecological ethics these days, it seems) as "the influential exponent of ethics-by-
extension," which "approach only strengthens anthropocentrism ..." Bill
McCormick challenges the various pro-natalist factions, who could— if more
people do not effectively ...

Gradualism,. beyond. Anthropocentrism. and. Biocentrism? Gunnar Skirbekk The
definition of sustainable development given by the UN World Commission does
not explicitly refer to ethical anthropocentrism, but, speaking in terms of the "
needs" of "the world's poor" and "of future generations", the Commission
apparently has human beings in mind, and human beings only. Even though
both Homo sapiens and other animals have needs, the World Commission
seems implicitly to take ...

Point. The realm of ethics is most often restricted to Man and the human world:
only humans can act morally or immorally, only humans can be morally praised
or blamed, only humans can have a worth or a value in themselves, only humans
can be holders of rights; all other beings can merely be ascribed rights or values
indirectly, relative to Man. In short only humans can be moral agents and only
humans ...

... with divergences potentially still wider than those of the Darwinian model,
since it is fully compatible with the holistic paradigm and with an organistic,
antimateri- alistic and antireductionistic vision such as that of Whitehead's
philosophy (1929). Through a sort of paradoxical effect, Gaia can thus be
proposed as a biocentric- geocentric paradigm that goes beyond biocentrism in
the name of multiplicity and collaboration between cultures and the recovery of
the mythical component.

Simultaneously, there is a need for an eco-evolutionary ethics which assumes
that we and our co-evolving aliens are living in a changing world. Difficult issues
should therefore be addressed, such as the uniqueness and intrinsic value of
living entities versus the substitutability of functionally redundant species, and the
evolutionary value of diversity. Finally, beyond the biocentrism versus
anthropocentrism debate, this EcoEvoEthics should affirm that a thing is right
when it tends to ...
