By Anna L. Peterson

Being Human examines the advanced connections between conceptions of human nature, attitudes towards non-human nature, and ethics. Anna Peterson proposes an "ethical anthropology" that examines how principles of nature and humanity are certain jointly in ways in which form the very foundations of cultures. Peterson discusses mainstream Western understandings of what it capacity to be human, in addition to possible choices to those views, and means that the development of a compelling, coherent environmental ethics will revise our rules not just approximately nature but in addition approximately what it potential to be human.
