Abstract: This article discusses some arguments for and against anthropocentrism, and will evaluate whether or not this attitude can be justified. It will be argued that engagement with certain intellectual perspectives and reflections can show that we can go beyond anthropocentrism. However, it shall also be noted that the very manner one views nature is inevitably anthropocentric, since, one tends to reach conclusions through human variables such as linguistic or cultural encasement, using human concepts to try and understand things which would be best understood outside human perspectives.
