Finding Naess in the Neotropics

image of Worldviews: Global Religions, Culture, and Ecology

In the Andean and Amazonian regions of South America new environmental ethics have emerged that postulate intrinsic values in the non-human. These biocentrisms do not derive directly from the deep ecology of Arne Naess, presenting several differences, but there are also important similarities, which are briefly noted. Southern biocentrism recognizes the rights of Nature but does so in an intercultural perspective, is much more politicized, and is part of ‘ontological openings’ to alternatives of ecological community that go beyond modernity.
