WHAT DOES ANTHROPOCENTRIC MEAN IN ENGLISH?

Anthropocentrism

Anthropocentrism /ˌænθrɵpɵˈsɛntrɪzəm/ is the belief that human beings are the central or most significant species on the planet, or the assessment of reality through an exclusively human perspective. The term can be used interchangeably with humanocentrism, and some refer to the concept as human supremacy or "human exceptionalism". The mediocrity principle is the opposite of Anthropocentrism. Anthropocentrism is considered to be profoundly embedded in many modern human cultures and conscious acts. It is a major concept in the field of environmental ethics and environmental philosophy, where it is often considered to be the root cause of problems created by human interaction with the environment. However, many proponents of anthropocentrism state that this is not necessarily the case: they argue that a sound long-term view acknowledges that a healthy, sustainable environment is necessary for humans and that the real issue is shallow anthropocentrism.

Definition of anthropocentric in the English dictionary
