Description

If you were the last person on earth and could destroy all remaining life with the press of a button, would it be wrong to do so? Anthropocentrists would say it is not wrong if human interests are not affected. Biocentrists would say yes it is, as all life has value. But how do we decide if nature has value beyond its use to humans? How do we resolve conflicts of interest between humans, plants and eco-systems? Is the fact that living organisms strive to stay alive morally relevant? Or is the wonder of nature enough to elicit obligations from us?
